Support a good cause and get in the holiday spirit

Festival of Trees has become a holiday staple — it raises funds for the University Hospital Foundation, and allows you to get in the festive spirit by checking out beautifully decorated trees. Whether you attend the gala evening, bring your children down Christmas lane, or just visit to get some inspiration for your own tree, it’s a great way to celebrate the season. You can check it out from November 30 to December 3.
