Wonderland of Trees
Wonderland of Trees is our largest fundraiser of the year. For this event the community gets involved by donating decorated Christmas trees, wreaths, hand made crafts, and paintings placed on silent auction. For one week in November, the donated items are on display at Three Star Mall in McMinnville, TN. Wonderland of Trees includes main stage live entertainment and an activity section for children. The public enjoys walking through this Wonderland and placing bids on holiday treasures.
