The Festival of Trees is our newest fundraising event for the WC Foundation. The holiday event features a silent and live auction, a Money Tree, a Wine Wheel, and many other festive surprises! There really is something for everyone!
Our 1st Annual Festival of Trees was held November 23, 2019. The event sold out with over 200 attendees and raised over $50,000 for the Westminster-Canterbury on Chesapeake Bay Foundation. See below for pictures from the 2019 event.
