LIFE Program presents: Festival of Trees Bookmark and Share

Nov 8

Myrtle Beach Convention Center
Free

The LIFE Program is hosting the Festival of Trees at the Dickens Christmas Show & Festivals at the Myrtle Beach Convention Center from Nov. 8 through Nov. 11, 2018. As hosts, the LIFE program recruits 50 sponsors to decorate pre-lit artificial trees that will offered for sale to the highest bidder in our silent auction. The trees range in size from 6 ½ - 12 feet tall and many include gift packages. Last year the gift packages ranged in value from $25- $3,000 and included a full-sized pool table, entries to the World Amateur Handicap Championship, gifts from Wonder Works, and tickets to local events.

The LIFE program is still looking for a few tree sponsors and volunteers to help with setting up and taking down trees, and assistance during the festival. If anyone is interested in volunteering they can sign up at: https://www.volunteersignup.org/MAWAT

The Festival of Trees is the LIFE Program’s major fundraiser. Last year, they raised nearly $17,000 for the LIFE Scholarship Fund to support LIFE Students with unmet financial need. They are also developing a LIFE Mentor Scholarship that will be awarded for the first time for academic year 2019/2020.
