Downtown Mattoon - Friday Dec. 2nd
Festival of Trees' Wine & Cheese Reception
Presented By Sarah Bush Lincoln Health Foundation
Sarah Bush Lincoln Health Center begins the holiday season in November with the annual Festival of Trees. More than 30 beautifully decorated trees, wreaths and specialty items transform the Lumpkin Family Center for Health Education into a holiday wonderland. After everyone has enjoyed the festivities, the items are auctioned and sold at a Gala Event. Net proceeds support Funding the Future Campaign.
In addition to the holiday trees, a Memory Tree adorns the center of the room and honors those who have received hospice care. Ornaments are engraved with names in memory of a loved one. Proceeds from the Memory Tree support Lincolnland Hospice.
