Trees of Hope WI Festival-Auction-Gala was so well-received this year ! There are so many people that helped make it a success! From the Host Hotel- Radisson Hotel Mayfair, who graciously provided us amost glorious facility and their staff that prepared delicious meals- both for the Santa Breakfast and the Gala Dinner !
The Sponsors and Decorators that created beautiful Trees and Wreaths, Auction items and more. Entertainment by Riverport Chorus, Latin Dancers- D'Lopez Academy of Dance and other professionals, Santa (Jerry Inhoff),Magician Jeffrey Campbell, Jayme Dawicki piano, Photographer Dave LaHaye.
A gallery of photos will be uploaded soon, but in the meantime you can see some of the beautiful displays on our PINTEREST PAGE.
All of the displays have a new home now, and the total raised was $20,000. This will be used towards supporting the Blood Center of Wisconsin in order to add people to the marrow donor registry (Be The Match) and towards supporting research for less-toxic, more effective treatments for blood cancer patients. More local patient services will be announced in the upcoming months.
