On Nov. 30, East Valley nonprofit ICAN will host the ninth annual Festival of Trees at the Sheraton Wild Horse Pass Resort, 5594 W. Wild Horse Pass Blvd. in Chandler, at 6 p.m.
Each year the event brings an evening filled with live entertainment, live and silent auctions, and a five-star, three-course dinner to celebrate accomplishments for the organization and the youth and families served.
This year’s theme is “Paint the Town Red” with more than 300 community members expected to attend. Information and tickets can be found at www.icanfestivaloftrees.com, www.icanaz.org or by calling (480) 821-4207. Tickets are $125 per person.
The Festival of Trees brings in much needed support for the following year’s programs that include free youth programs for ages 5-18 to prevent substance abuse, gang activity, and juvenile delinquency.
