Coralville – Fast becoming a Thanksgiving Weekend tradition, the Festival of Trees Opening Gala and Winter Ball is returning once again to the Coralville Marriott Hotel and Convention Center, this year in the Coral Ballroom. Over 30 artistically designed trees and wreaths will be on display and for auction at the opening Gala. Also, special “grab bags” featuring prizes from many local businesses will be available, both adult and kid-friendly. Continuing last year’s innovation, we will be offering Holiday Stockings designed by local businesses filled with special gifts.
New this year: a balloon artist and magicians will entertain younger attendees and a SPECIAL VISIT FROM SANTA will guarantee that this is the most family-friendly fundraising event of the season! Dance the night away with the Rod Pierson Big Band. Enjoy a special selection of heavy hors d’oeuvres provided by the Coralville Marriott Hotel and Convention Center. Delight to the Auction stylings of local Auction Legend Brent Wears. Support the Arts and enjoy a great holiday party for the whole family! Featuring a special performance by the Nolte Academy of Dance, this evening is one not to be missed.
The Festival of Trees is a Benefit for the Coralville Center for the Performing Arts, presented by City Circle Acting Company of Coralville and the Coralville Marriott Hotel and Convention Center. It will be held Saturday, November 24, 6:30 p.m.—10:30 p.m. Tickets are $25 per person or $200 for a table of 10, and are available at coralvillearts.org.
