Festival of Trees Show and Auction
November 15, 2020 @ 1:00 pm - November 21, 2020 @ 1:00 pm
This year, the Festival of Trees will be 100% online. While St. Anthony Retreat hopes to be open by December, chances are low that they will be able to house the typical crowds. Therefore, to ensure that all can enjoy the festivities of this year’s festivities, they are bringing it directly to you!
The theme this year is Trees and Trains.
So how will an online Festival of Trees be done?
First, all of the trees will be at the retreat center, or more specifically, at the St. Junipero Serra Chapel on the Santa Teresita campus. Second, the event will encompass a full week so that all will have the opportunity to view the trees and enjoy the event. Third, there will be spotlight videos of each tree each night of the event. These videos will highlight the tree as well as the charity benefiting from the proceeds of the tree auction.
The auction will be conducted online, similar to a silent auction. However, the tree auction will close early on Saturday, November 21 and a live auction will begin in the evening on the 21st, picking up where the online auction left off. The link to join the live auction will be readily available and all are welcome to bid on the trees!
