The exquisite art piece will be auctioned at the 5th annual Charity Ball Festival of Trees. The upscale, black-tie-optional gala will be held on Saturday, December 5 at Lenawee County Club. The gala includes dinner and wine, dancing to a live band, and an auction of beautiful Christmas trees and wreaths with attached packages, plus incredible works of art. Auction packages include one week at a beautiful St. Simons Island beach home, a Grand Hotel package, and a week’s stay on pristine Sugar Island.
Proceeds from the Charity Ball Festival of Trees will be utilized for the work of Kappa Kappa Epsilon (KKE) to benefit local women’s and children’s charitable organizations, and the Lenawee Community Foundation to benefit civic, cultural, health, educational, and social services.
