Festival offers deal on early ticket sales

Big Brothers Big Sisters of Island County will present the 12th Annual Festival of Trees Gala and Auction at 5:30 p.m. Saturday, Dec. 4 at the Useless Bay Golf & Country Club in Langley.

Early birds who buy their Festival of Trees tickets now will receive tickets for the Big Brothers Big Sisters gala and auction at a $10 discount. Tickets are $85 per person, but if you purchase your ticket before Nov. 15, they are only $75 per ticket.

This entertaining formal event, featuring uniquely decorated trees and wreaths, benefits the children in the community by matching them with mentors in positive one-to-one relationships through the nonprofit organization.

The Festivals of Trees is a community celebration designed to brighten the holiday season, while also brightening the futures of certain children in the community, organizers said. All funds go directly to children’s services.

To make reservations, call Peggy Dyer, executive director of Big Brothers Big Sisters, at 360-279-0644 or e-mail bbbs@whidbey.net.
