Trips, getaways, sports and entertainment items will also be raffled off — all for an amazing annual cause that supports our community’s health. This year proceeds from the Festival and the Gala Fund a Dream Appeal will benefit Barton’s Mental & Behavioral Health Services.
“The Festival of Trees & Lights provides a warm and family-friendly atmosphere to inspire people to get into the spirit of holiday giving,” says Kindle Craig, the director of the Barton Foundation. “All the money raised goes back into the community and supports health and wellness programs.”
