The Festival of Trees is presented by the Mariam Hayes Society and benefits the Boys & Girls Club of Cabarrus County. Through the generous support of our sponsors and guests, this event has become the Club’s largest fundraiser, allowing us to serve thousands of youth each year.
The weekend of festivities begins on Friday with the Deck the Halls Gala, featuring heavy hors d'oeuvres and open bar, and live entertainment by Sol Fusion. Kids are invited to the Children's Event to enjoy an afternoon of holiday crafts, activities and a visit with Santa on Saturday. Saturday afternoon is an opportunity to view the beautifully decorated trees. Sunday concludes the weekend with a delicious buffet Lunch Among the Trees for the entire family.
Sponsorships are available and range from $750 to $5,000. Each sponsorship includes a beautifully decorated Christmas tree and a designated number of tickets to each of the three Festival events. Individual event tickets are also available.
Mark your calendar for the first weekend in December, and join us as we kick off the holiday season!
