Every year the Arizona Burn Foundation kicks off the holiday season with our Holiday Festival of Trees gala. This is our signature fundraising event of the year with all of the proceeds disbursed for the continuation of the programs we offer for the burn survivor community.
6pm-7pm: Cocktail Party and Reception
During the cocktail party and reception mingle with old and new friends as you browse the beautifully decorated trees featured in the live auction or bid on a silent auction of holiday themed table top trees, wreaths, floral arrangements, stockings and special gift items.
Dinner in the Grand Ballroom
Be seated for your 3 course dinner and enjoy the company of those at your table.
Program and Live Auction
After dinner be moved by a short program illustrating the importance of enrichment programs for burn survivors.
The evening then becomes a live auction of brilliant professionally designed and decorated Christmas trees. The ‘auction fever’ becomes very exciting as bidders try to win the highest bid for their favorite tree.
On Sunday morning the trees are “shrink wrapped” and delivered by local firefighters to the home of the highest bidder. Imagine the glee when your family Christmas tree is delivered and set up by the firefighters!
This event is a fabulous way to extend generosity during the spirit of the holiday season. It is also a nice alternative for a company holiday party to involve staff in a philanthropic mission within an elegant setting.
