This Friday night is the Christmas Tree Auction at the Visalia convention Center. It is one of the areas largest fundraisers and always a great time from what I hear. I found info on it at the Visalia chamber website. This is what they have to say. You can also click here to purchase tickets!
Our black-tie gala, Christmas Tree Auction, has been the premiere annual holiday event for 37 years, raising over 1 Million dollars for local charities. Join us to enjoy fine wines, locally crafted microbrews, culinary delights and bid on exquisitely decorated opulent Christmas trees and unique silent auction items. For many charities, the money raised, at this event is the primary fundraiser for their operations throughout the year. For community, corporate and business leaders this event is their chance to make final end of the year donations while celebrating the best of the holiday season. The Visalia Chamber of Commerce is proud and honored to host this beautiful formal event that gives back to our community in so many real and important ways.
