Venue: Community Choice Credit Union Convention Center/Veteran’s Memorial Auditorium

Main Attraction: Festival of Trees & Lights is a five-day public event that celebrated its 31st year in 2014 and serves as the primary fundraiser for Blank Children’s Hospital. The event kicked off with the Festival Gala on November 25 and featured 77 beautifully decorated trees, entertainment, children’s activities, food, shopping and more!

Bottom Line: This year’s Festival raised a record-breaking $480,000 for the Child Life and Advocacy and Outreach programs at Blank Children’s, both of which are only made possible through the generosity of others! We are truly humbled by this outpouring of support and could not be more grateful to live in such an amazing community.
