On Monday, members of the Festival of Trees Committee made a $2,500 donation to the North Platte Community Playhouse board of directors.

The 10th annual Festival of Trees was held at the Prairie Arts Center in conjunction with the Carousel of Homes tour, which was hosted by the Community Playhouse.

The Festival of Trees allowed residents to view and purchase trees and wreaths donated and decorated by local businesses and organizations, PAC Executive Director Holly Carlini said.

The event raised approximately $9,000 this year. All proceeds from the event supported the two non-profits — the Prairie Arts Center and the North Platte Community Playhouse.

The auction of trees generated $7,300 for the Prairie Arts Center.

Both organizations greatly appreciate the time, dedication and care every donor, business and group gives to the Festival of Trees, Carlini said.

“It’s a fun holiday event that helps spread good cheer, while supporting local non-profits,” she said.
