What’s the first thing that comes to your mind when you think of Christmas? For me, it’s quality family time. Traditionally, the trimming (or decorating) of the Christmas tree is a family event with every family member involved in the decoration. Some families hold parties with friends, and others make it family-only time. Regardless of the format, this special tradition creates memories that last for generations to come.
At Family Builders, we have created a Christmas event that reflects the joy of that family time while also providing an opportunity for our community to join us in spreading Christmas cheer. We are proud to present our inaugural Christmas Tree Festival on Thursday, November 29 from 5:30 to 9 p.m. at the Meinders Hall of Mirrors located in the Civic Center in downtown Oklahoma City!
Local artists, designers, florists, and businesses are invited to donate a decorated Christmas tree or an artistic representation of a Christmas tree for the event. You can learn more about the requirements here.
The event will be in the format of a gala/cocktail party, and the donated trees will be auctioned at the event. Auction winners will have the option of keeping their purchased tree OR donating it to a Family Builders’ family who may otherwise not have a Christmas tree this season.
The evening is also set to feature a silent auction, an artfully crafted signature cocktail, festive entertainment, hors d’oeuvres, wine, beer, and bubbly.
