    Festival of Trees

    The 2020 Helping Hands Festival of Trees is a magical, festive event as the community comes together once again in the spirit of this wonderful holiday season for a common cause — the opportunity to make a difference in the lives of the less fortunate of our community.

    The 11th Annual Festival of Trees Gala will be held on Saturday, November 14th from 6:30pm – 12:00am. This event includes a live auction, raffle, and more!

    A unique feature of the weekend will be the donated decorative trees & wreaths! All trees and wreaths will be decorated by local Rockwall businesses and organizations. The one-of-a-kind trees and wreaths, combined with holiday entertainment will create an exciting weekend you won’t want to miss!

    Here’s a look at last year’s gala:

    Cocktail hour will be at 6 p.m., followed by a seated dinner at 7:30 p.m. The benefit auction begins at 8:30. Shop the Holiday Market and trees from 6 to 8. Cocktail attire.

    Back by popular demand, Cynthia Smoot will host the annual Festival of Trees Fashion Show and this year will be joined by co-host Courtney Kerr. The runway will be filled with fashions from The Helping Hands Thrift Store and Boutique as models strut the runway with sounds by “DJ LC”-Lamont Carlis!
