The 2016 Helping Hands Festival of Trees will begin November 18th and 19th at 10 am, with tons of folks getting into the holiday spirit at The Hilton Dallas/Rockwall Lakefront as they browse the many different Christmas trees and wreaths. The annual event benefits Rockwall County Helping Hands – a non-profit agency that helps keep families in crisis in their homes with the utilities on and nutritious food on their tables, and its Health Center offers basic affordable medical care.
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!
Helping Hands will also be collecting toys and gift cards to make a special Christmas for Rockwall children in need.
