For the 13th year, the annual Festival of Trees is once again brightening up downtown Fort Myers in an effort to raise money for Goodwill Industries of Southwest Florida.
You can view more than 20 trees at the Sidney & Berne Davis Art Center and pick out the tree you like the best with a chance to win one. The trees are up for raffle, with tickets starting at $10 per ticket, or you can get 3 for $25. On Sunday, December 8th a live and silent auction will take place with all proceeds going towards Goodwill.
Each tree has its own theme and comes with prizes, from trips to a day at the beach, even power tools and wine as well as some sports memorabilia.
Santa will greet visitors, host a brunch and participate in cookie decorating along with other festive activities for children.

Last year Goodwill Industries of Southwest Florida helped more than 40,000 people in our community, in part because of the community support from events like Festival of Trees.
The Sidney & Berne Davis Art Center is located at 2301 First Street in the downtown Fort Myers River District.
