Gala of Trees
No need to untangle the Christmas tree lights this year. One group has come up with a fun way to make decorating for the holidays less of a chore.
The annual Gala of Trees will be held November 17-19 at Wobbly Boots in Osage Beach. You can bid on a completely-decorated Christmas tree, many with unique themes and unusual ornaments, but you must be the highest bidder by the closing of the Gala auction on November 19. If you are the winning bidder, just load up the tree and take it home.
Money goes to support Candyland, a project that provides gifts to families for Christmas.
Event organizer Christy Janssen and her mom, Pam Leffringhouse, came up with the idea after decorating trees for the Symphony of Trees in Quincy, Ill. It has been held at Bootlegger’s since 2010 but moved to Wobbly Boots this year.
