Tickets are now on sale for the annual Festival of Trees gala and silent auction to be held on Friday, Dec. 7, at Tillamook County Pioneer Museum.
“This is Tillamook’s premier holiday event,” said organizer Carla Albright. “It is the time when we all dress up and have a festive time with friends, old and new. But don’t delay to get your tickets. We have sold out early the last four years.”
Running from 5:30 to 8 pm, the event offers heavy hors d’oeuvres from Twins Ranch Catering, with some delicious goodies being shipped to Tillamook from Italy. Wine will be supplied by Blue Heron French Cheese Company. Eleven full-sized decorated Christmas trees will also be auctioned, with the winning bidders having their trees delivered and set up in their homes on Tuesday, Dec. 11.
Organizers are also accepting donations of holiday wreaths, centerpieces and other festive items and baskets for the “Santa Packs” that will be auctioned throughout the gala
The event is the only fund-raiser the museum hosts for itself each year, with this year’s proceeds going toward funding upgrades to the blacksmith exhibit.
Tickets, $35, are available at the museum, open from 10 am to 4 pm Tuesday through Sunday at 2106 Second Street in downtown Tillamook.
