Thank you for your support of our third annual Festival of Trees event.  The funds we raised are enabling us to help local families in need have a brighter holiday – and a more promising future.  You are responsible for the success of our event and we sincerely thank you.

The beautiful trees, the wonderful food and company – and the exciting auction – made Festival of Trees an evening to remember.  It also gave us the occasion to remember those less fortunate Orange County families who have no home and no hope of having a Christmas tree.  Through your generosity, many of those families will receive assistance and the hope for a home and a Christmas tree next year.


With your help, Festival of Trees raised over $60,000. Our fundraising events, donations, volunteer time, food drives, holiday programs and community support allow us to help more than 3,000 people each month.

As we enter the new year, we would like to invite you to join us at Empty Bowls, a humble event featuring a unique soup tasting from local chefs and handmade ceramic bowls for each guest as a reminder of those whose bowls are truly empty. Empty Bowls will take place on Thursday, April 20, 2017.

Thank you again for your contribution to the success of Festival of Trees!   We wish you and yours a very happy and healthy 2017 and look forward to continuing to partner with you to end hunger and house hope.
