Be part of a CU tradition this holiday season, and attend the 19th Annual Festival of Trees this Saturday, Nov. 22, from 8 a.m. to 6 p.m. and Sunday, Nov. 23, from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. at the Hilton Garden Inn in Champaign.
Entry costs five dollars for adults and children 13 years of age and older, and three dollars for senior citizens. All proceedings will be used for community grants and programs benefitting children and families and the Junior League, an organization of women committed to promote volunteer opportunities and leadership skills.
“It is a wonderful way to kick start the holiday season. In addition to supporting our several community school readiness projects, it allows guests to participate in fun activities. To help round out the holiday atmosphere, we will have several community groups perform during the public hours on Saturday and Sunday providing festive music for our fabulous event,” Chair of the Festival Trees Laura Gerhold said.
Attendees will get the chance to participate in a raffle, silent auction prizes and shop at the holiday gift gallery.
