Palmetto Health Foundation’s Festival of Trees, to be held Nov. 16 to 18, is the perfect way to jump-start the Christmas spirit! It’s a Midlands tradition like no other featuring beautifully decorated trees, wreaths and other holiday items that are up for bid during a weekend-long silent auction to benefit Palmetto Health Children’s Hospital.
The Festival of Trees auction preview will be held Nov. 16. Attendees will enjoy heavy hors d’oeuvres, desserts, cocktails and the opportunity to preview and purchase magnificent holiday items. Tickets are $75 per person and $125 per couple. The Jingle Bell Jam with singer-songwriter Patrick Davis will be held Nov. 17 and is sure to be a toe-tapping event. Tickets are $25 per person and $40 per couple. In addition, hundreds of families will enjoy free admission Saturday and Sunday to be dazzled by local choirs, dance groups, mascots, and of course, Santa.
