The silent auction for the Family Place’s Festival of Trees closes tonight at 7:00 p.m., and everything can be viewed on their Facebook page HERE.  

Today is the last day to bid on items and to view the trees, but Executive Director Dawn Gutzke said Thursday is also a big day for the festival. 

“We're really looking forward to Thursday. We're kicking off the tree auction Thursday morning and we're really excited for that, and we're really hoping that it's going to be a big success this year. We're really relying on it to help us out and fulfill our budget needs for the year, so Thursday is the big day. We're hoping that everyone remembers it and bids on these beautiful, beautiful trees that were donated to us.” 

She says the tree auction starts at 9:00 a.m. and runs until 8:00 p.m.
