Reunite With Your Holiday Spirit at the Bay Area Rotary Club Festival of Trees Event November 24, 2014 – December 2, 2014
There is something very special that happens here at The Mill Casino every November & December. Even Ebeneezer Scrooge would be hard pressed to ward off the holiday spirit that fills our hotel & casino when Bay Area Rotary club presents their annual Festival of Trees!
The Festival of Trees is an event where participants demonstrate their holiday-decorating talents while raising thousands of dollars for local charities like Shots for Tots and Women’s Safety & Resource Center.
Businesses and individuals throughout the community come together annually to create this seasonal charity extravaganza by decorating or sponsoring special holiday trees and wreaths. The decorated trees and wreaths are then placed on public display for a week in our lobby, then auctioned off and delivered to the home of the winning bid or to a local family in need*.
Check out some of the winning decorations from the 2013 event:
