The 2018 Helping Hands Festival of Trees will begin November 16th at 10 am sharp with a bevy of Christmas shoppers flooding the Hilton Dallas/Rockwall Lakefront hotel to kick-off their holiday shopping with touring and purchasing the amazing re-purposed items, Christmas trees and decorated wreaths. It 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.
Highlighting the event will be the Re-purpose Challenge & Donated Decorative Trees & Wreaths! Dozens of creative, re-purposed and recreated items will be for sale made by local area artists. These special productions will be intertwined among decorated Christmas trees and wreaths. All items are donated by local businesses and organizations. From elegant to whimsical, the one-of-a-kind pieces, trees and wreaths combined with live holiday entertainment create a beautiful holiday setting you won’t want to miss.
Back by popular demand, the Boutique of Helping Hands will set aside a special area selling the best of the best donated merchandise at low prices.
As the day turns into night on November 17th, so will begin the gala which includes a live auction, the raffle of an exquisite item and much more!
