Festival of Trees
TIME: 6:00 pm
to 9:00 pm
Here is your chance to purchase a custom decorated tree and have it delivered to your home.
The Festivals of Trees is an event held for the past nine years by the Downtown New London Association (DNLA) and Neff Productions, to help raise money to feed needy families during the holiday season.
Here’s how it works: The DNLA provides live Christmas trees. Some themes from last year included: Vintage Maritime, Circus, Seashore and Peacock feathers. Then on December 1, 2012 we auction the decorated trees to the highest bidder. The DNLA will deliver the decorated Christmas trees to the winning bidders’ homes the next day.
Tickets for the event are $12. Tickets include Beer, Wine and light Hors d’oeuvres.
You can purchase tickets at GreenLight Boutique (66 Bank St, New London) or Bijou Salon & Spa (256 Boston Post Rd, Waterford)
Proceeds from the auction are donated to the New London Community Meal Center to provide holiday meals to local families. We also work with The Covenant Shelter and donate decorated Christmas trees to families who can’t afford to buy and decorate one.
