Welcome to the 2020 Rock River Hospice & Home Festival of Trees Online Auction. For 31 years, the Festival of Trees has been the kick-off event to the Holiday Season in our communities. This is no different this year, only different in looks and format.
We encourage and hope you enjoy this online auction experience of decorated trees, table settings, baskets, desserts and other items. All proceeds from the Festival of Trees supports Rock River Hospice & Home and hospice services in our communities.
Thank you to our sponsors, volunteers, decorators, donors and bidders for your support and contributions to this year's Festival of Trees.
The auction begins at 7 a.m. on Tuesday, Nov. 17 and will continue through 3 p.m. on Saturday, November 21. All decorated Friendship Trees and Large Trees are available for bidding on this site and are available for viewing only in open storefronts at Northland Mall.
Winning bidders may pay:
