Pardee Hospital along with the Flat Rock Playhouse will host an inaugural Festival of Trees for this upcoming holiday season that will benefit local community charities.
Local businesses are invited to purchase and decorate a tree to be displayed in the lobby of Playhouse Downtown, the downtown location of Flat Rock Playhouse. Proceeds from a silent auction of the trees will go to benefit a local charity of the sponsor’s choice.
Ace Hardware will be offering artificial Christmas trees at a discounted price, including delivery, to the downtown venue to participants. There will be three options for tree purchasing, 4-foot, 6-foot and 7 1/2-foot, with clear or colored lights.
To participate in the Festival of Trees contact Heather McGaha at (828) 693-0403 ext. 230. Registration will end Wednesday, Oct. 31.
