About this Event


The Lake Area Technical Institute Holiday Festival of Trees is an annual fundraiser designed to “Build a Better Lake Area Technical Institute” through scholarships, program enhancements and campus improvements. Last year, the Foundation awarded nearly 400 scholarships totally over $400,000; this is an increase from $350,000 in scholarships given in the previous year! All proceeds from this event are designated for student scholarships, program enhancements and campus improvements.

The 20th Annual Festival of Trees will be held Friday, November 22, 2019 at Lake Area Technical Institute’s Student Center.

Since 2000, the Foundation has hosted the event on the Friday before Thanksgiving. The Festival is a gala event and includes a Silent and Live auction. Individuals, businesses and corporations donate beautifully decorated Christmas trees, wreaths, holiday ensembles or very unique items to the auction. There are generally 35 live auction items and 55 silent auction items. Each unique gift donated to the event provides fun and excitement for our guests, and makes this event a crowd favorite each year!
