19th Annual Holiday Festival of Trees Friday, November 16th

We are truly excited to bring the Festival “home” to Lake Area Tech yet again this year. This opportunity allows us to share our campus with 450 friends/ donors/ and business partners who attend annually; while maximizing our fundraising efforts to support our students.

Since 2000, the Foundation has hosted the event on the Friday before Thanksgiving.  The Festival is a gala event and includes a Silent and Live auction. Individuals, businesses and corporations donate beautifully decorated Christmas trees, wreaths, holiday ensembles or very unique items to the auction. There are generally 35 live auction items and 55 silent auction items. Each unique gift donated to the event provides fun and excitement for our guests, and makes this event a crowd favorite each year!
