Festival of Trees draws near

CHAMPAIGN — The 19th annual Festival of Trees, a fund-raiser held by the Junior League of Champaign-Urbana, will be held later this month at the Hilton Garden Inn.

Hours will be 8 a.m. to 6 p.m. Nov. 22 and 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. Nov. 23.

Admission is $5 for adults and $3 for those 65 and older and children 3-12. Kids under age 3 and are admitted free.

Tickets will be available at the door.

The Festival of Trees features decorated, themed holiday trees, wreaths and gift baskets that are raffled or auctioned during the weekend. It also includes a gift gallery with local vendors.

Proceeds support Junior League outreach projects such as League Locker, a school supply warehouse for teachers; Junior League Bright Starts, a kindergarten readiness program; and Kids in the Kitchen, which focuses on healthy eating and exercise for at-risk kids, plus scholarships and community grants.
