Our council is sponsoring a Christmas tree vignette at The Arc’s Festival of Trees, which is open to the public 9 a.m.-3 p.m. Tuesday through Thursday this week (Nov 30-Dec 2) at the Sheraton Hotel, Chapel Hill.
There is also a publicly open Family Night Tuesday 5-9 p.m. with entertainment and activities. Free admittance with donations accepted. Shula’s 347 Grill is offering a special discounted dinner menu to attendees on Tuesday night, with 20% of dinner proceeds also going to The Arc.
Wednesday night is a special Ladies Night event, and Thursday night is the big gala and final auction that you can purchase tickets to for $50, if interested.
The Arc provides programs to help the intellectually disabled. The Festival of Trees is a fundraiser with 53 sponsored Christmas tree displays, 30 sponsored wreath displays, and numerous donated separate items that all get auctioned off.
Tom Stoffel, chairman of this project, has put together a fabulous vignette. Why not take time for the holidays and visit the Festival of Trees? Better yet, maybe even to bid on a display or one of the many donated single items. Single items might include a massage package, a weekend package at the beach, and a tandem skydive! You will have to attend to find out what they are!
The Knights of Columbus theme is “Keep Christ in Christmas”.
