Second Annual Christmas Tree Gala

. November 26, 2013.

Treat yourself to an afternoon of holiday fun, all for a great cause, during Fox Run Manor’s Second Annual Christmas Tree Gala. During the gala, guests can participate in a silent auction to purchase beautifully decorated Christmas trees. The trees are donated by local community members and businesses, and this year’s money raised will go to City Mission in Findlay. Patricia Sanchez, community coordinator for Fox Run, said last year there were 38 trees of all sizes ranging from very large to table top size. Decorations ranged from a very popular Dietsch’s Ice Cream tree, complete with coupons and bags of chocolate pretzels tied with ribbons; to a small “Hot Wheels” tree decorated with toy cars; to a large tree decorated for the new year, complete with top hat tree topper and lots of sparkles. Guests can anticipate a visit from Santa during the gala, as well as crafts for kids, music and refreshments. Trees can be taken home after December 25. Last year’s event raised $6,367 for Hancock County Cancer Patient Services, Sanchez said.

Sunday, December 15 from 1:30-3:30pm. Prices to purchase vary depending on the tree. The Gala will be held at Fox Run Manor, 11745 TR 145, Findlay. Trees can still be donated until Dec. 6. Call Sanchez at 419-424-0832 to make donation arrangements or with any questions.
