The evening festivities include the silent tree auction. Numerous businesses and individuals throughout the area decorate trees and wreaths and donate the items for silent bidding. There is a tree or wreath for everyone at this event.

First Federal logo 10-2013Auction items include a variety of price points and range from wreaths and small tabletop trees to seven-foot tall holiday greens. Those who attend will see everything from traditional holiday fashion, peacock, rustic and sports decorations!  Even if area residents don’t need a tree, this event is still for them. In the true spirit of the holiday season, winning bidders are given the option of donating the beautifully decorated item to a less fortunate family in the community.

Tickets are $35 and on sale now at the YWCA.  Doors open at 6 p.m. and the event begins at 7 that evening. Seating is reserved.  All proceeds from the event go to support the YWCA Transitional Living Program for homeless women and families and domestic violence services. Seating is limited. Call the YWCA today to register.
