    Festival of Trees - Wednesday, December 6th
    Gateway Center Collinsville

    The most anticipated Christmas Party of the year, the 24th Annual Festival of Trees Gala, returns to Gateway Center on Wednesday, December 6, 2017.

    For the last 24 years, Gateway Center’s Board of Directors has provided local, not-for-profit organizations an opportunity to raise funds for ongoing and new community- based projects. Since the event’s inception, nearly half a million dollars in proceeds have been invested in local projects that have enhanced the quality of life for area residents and promoted civic pride.

    The beneficiaries of the 2017 Festival of Trees are the Freemasons of Collinsville Masonic Temple Lodge #712 and 712 Charity, Inc. Freemasonry has for many years worked to assist the youth of our area with their core masonic principle, “In Search of More Light.” Funds received from the 2017 Festival of Trees will be used to help provide seed money to give those interested in pursuing a trade or profession the chance to do so by providing scholarship opportunities for continuing education beyond the high school level.
