Mark your calendars now for the 2019 Holiday Gala, Rockin’ Around the Christmas Tree, November 16. Volunteer members are working hard to offer a fabulous evening with exciting auction items.
The Gala will be at the Riverhouse on the Deschutes, and include dinner, dancing, and silent and live auctions. Your favorite rock and roll tunes will be offered by Bend Sound Event, who will dedicate your favorite song to your favorite guy or gal. Travel, jewelry, wine, and golf packages are among the live and silent auction items.
All proceeds benefit children and adults in need in Deschutes County. Tickets are $125 per person and go on sale Oct. 1. Attendees should come dressed for a “Rockin’ Good Time.”
The Gala is the Assistance League of Bend’s largest fundraiser for its many philanthropies. The event began in 1995 as Festival of Trees at Awbrey Glen Golf Club. The event has also been held in Sunriver, at Broken Top Golf Club, and for the last several years at the Riverhouse Convention Center, always right before the holiday season begins in November. The Gala of Trees, as it became to be known, features a sit-down dinner, live and silent auctions, entertainment, fabulous themed decorations and plenty of festivity. Funds raised in the community stay in the community.
