The McDonough District Hospital Foundation will once again kick off the Holiday season by hosting the 16th annual Festival of Trees. The Festival is a fundraising event to benefit MDH and the funds raised this year are being directed toward a CT scanner technology upgrade.
The festivities will begin Monday, November 28, with the Teddy Bear Social “Ladies Night Out” at The Macomb Dining Company (upstairs). Admission is $20 and a new teddy bear. The bears will be given to pediatric patients at MDH and there will be a silent auction of themed baskets.
The Macomb Arts Center will be transformed into a Holiday wonderland featuring a beautiful display of Holiday trees. Jingle & Mingle will be held Thursday evening, December 1. This ticketed event is black tie optional and $50 per person. Attendees can meander through the many exquisite trees as they enjoy hors d’oeuvres and live entertainment. There will be a Fund-A-Need auction held during the event.
The Festival of Trees will be open to the community with a $3 admission fee at the times and dates listed below (children 10 and under are free):
· Friday, December 2: 4-8 p.m.
