Generosity and grandeur are combined as the Visalia Chamber of Commerce presents the 38th Annual Christmas Tree Auction Holiday Affair set to kick off Friday, December 7, 2018 at the Visalia Convention Center.
The Annual Christmas Tree Auction raises money and awareness for non-profit organizations impacting Visalia. More than four million dollars has been raised for local charities over the last 37 years. Underscoring the significance of this annual event, the Christmas Tree Auction is the primary fundraising mechanism for participating non-profits.
Volunteers have already started to design and decorate 13 elaborate Christmas trees to be auctioned off live the night of the event. Additionally, that evening proceeds from silent auction items, including small decorated trees will benefit more than 20 local charities including:
Arts Visalia, Celebrate Recovery, Daughters of Hope, Deaf and Hard of Hearing Service Center, Eagle Mountain Foundation, El Diamante Class of 2019, Genesis House, Golden State Family Services, Hands in the Community, ImagineU Interactive Children’s Museum, Kaweah Delta Foundation Lifeline, Kaweah Delta Hospice Foundation, Love in the Name of Christ, My Fathers House, Read for Life, Samaritan Center of Tulare County, Seven Oaks Church, St. Paul’s School, The Ruth Wood Open Arms House, Valley Oak SPCA, Valley PBS, Visalia Rescue Mission, Visalia Police Explorer Post #32, Young Life Tulare County
The Annual Christmas Tree Auction has become a local holiday tradition. Each year more than 1,200 people dressed in their finest holiday attire kick off the season with a giving spirit. This year’s event includes an appearance by the Mt. Whitney Drum Line, music provided by DJ John McCullough and a special Holiday sponsored surprise during the evening. This is an event not to be missed.
