Milton, FL – Santa Rosa Kids’ House (SRKH) will host its Fourth Annual Festival



of Trees on Saturday, November 23rd. This year the event will take place at the



beautifully restored Imogene Theater at 6866 Caroline Street in Downtown



Milton. The Imogene will be open for tours on Saturday from 10am to 3pm. On



Saturday evening at 6:30 PM the Festival of Trees will conclude with a Christmas



Celebration to include silent and live auctions of the decorated trees, wreaths,



door designs, and table centerpieces. Last year over $35,000 was raised. This



year SRKH hopes to raise at least $50,000.



Festival of Trees is Santa Rosa Kids’ House’s biggest fundraising event of the



season. The community is encouraged to join us to view dozens of decorated



trees and holiday decorations donated by local businesses, churches, civic



organizations and individuals. Everyone will have a chance to join the online



auction of several of the beautiful pieces on display. These can be viewed and



bid on online via the Santa Rosa Kids’ House website. Tickets to view trees and



wreaths inside the Imogene are $5 for adults and free for children 12 years of



age and under.



This is truly a celebration for the whole family. Santa will be available for pictures.



Children young and old can enjoy face painting, cookie decorating activities,



Christmas crafts, and hot chocolate. All these activities are free of charge. There



will also be a craft fair, “Festival Market Place,” Saturday, November 23rd from



8am to 3pm on the Imogene lawn with lots of great holiday shopping



opportunities. If you are interested in having a booth, please call Adair Cotton at

beverages will be served, followed by live and silent auctions of all the holiday



pieces. This year music will be added to the mix with the Jingle Bell Jam
