Dozens of donated trees by local businesses and organizations will be on display, and the Boutique of Helping Hands will set aside a special area selling donated merchandise at low prices. New this year will be a Clearance sale on Nov. 20 until noon. November 19 will bring the gala which includes a live auction, the raffle of an exquisite item and much more!
