Dec. 3-5: Festival of Trees

Festival of Trees benefits children’s hospital

The second annual Festival of Trees event, benefiting the Children’s Miracle Network at UF Health Shands Children’s Hospital, will be held Dec. 3-5 at Tioga Town Center. The event consists of a weekend-long silent auction of decorated trees and wreaths, and strives to bring the Gainesville community together to kick off the holiday season and support the health care needs of our local kids. Community members and businesses have the opportunity to support this event by becoming an event sponsor, donating a decorated tree or wreath or attending the event to purchase a tree to take home.
