Festival of Trees and Rockin' Around the Wreaths Raises $23,800
Monday, December 3, 2018 11:00 AM

The 2018 Festival of Trees was held in the Dallas/Fort Worth area, and at the same time the Rockin’ Around the Wreaths event was held at Cornerstone’s Arkansas office.  

The Dallas and Fort Worth Chapters came together to host more than 200 people at this year’s event. The Central Arkansas, Pine Bluff, and South Central Arkansas chapters joined forces with 46 people attending their second annual Christmas party and Foundation fundraiser. Both events were great examples of the cooperative spirit with credit unions and chapters coming together to celebrate the holiday while supporting your Foundation. 

A total of 10 trees and more than 60 wreaths were donated to the auctions by credit unions, individuals, and vendors.

Special thanks goes to auctioneers Jeff Hurley and Skeeter Brosius, everyone who attended and purchased the trees and wreaths, the committee members who gave their time and creativity to the events, and of course our sponsors:
