The magic of the holiday season feels far away but the 8th Annual Festival of Trees is right around the corner! Be sure to brighten your holiday season by following the Boutique of Helping Hands to the Hilton Friday, Nov. 10 & Saturday, Nov. 11 for our Huge Holiday Market Sale and Festivities!

Hundreds of holiday items, home decor, furniture, jewelry, clothing, wreaths, trees, re-purposed gems and more will be available for sale with all proceeds benefiting local Rockwall residents in need! Open free to the public from 10 am until 5 pm both days. You will also delight in the live holiday entertainment scheduled throughout the weekend set up right inside the market area. Performances are all live by local area residents and range from musical to theatrical from all ages.

While at this festive boutique sale, you won’t want to miss our showcase of extraordinary trees and wreaths on display through Saturday evening. Stop by to vote on your favorite tree, as well as have the opportunity to purchase it!

Making an exciting return, the Community Circle auxiliary group is hosting their 2nd Annual Ladies Lunch & Style Show Friday, November 10th from 11:30am – 1:30pm. This luncheon is the perfect place to enjoy friends, feast a little, relax at the fashion show then finish the afternoon strong by shopping the boutique.

 Saturday evening will be host to the year’s Festival of Trees Gala sponsored by Rusty Wallis Honda Volkswagen. We will be celebrating the agency’s service to Rockwall County. This event includes a bounty of holiday offerings such as:
• Unique live auction items for everyone on your holiday gift list;
• An amazing raffle for a fabulous item from Willis Fine Jewelers;
• The opportunity to buy the extraordinary trees and wreaths created for the event;
• A chance to do some final shopping at the Boutique of Helping Hands Holiday Market.

Please visit for a schedule of events, to become a tree participant, auction item donor, or to purchase one of the few remaining tickets for the Ladies Luncheon or Gala.

*Please note the Thrift Store & Boutique location at 950 Williams Street will be closed on Saturday, November 11th.

Funds raised through the Festival of Trees help to ensuring that no one in Rockwall County goes to bed hungry, without a roof overhead, or is deprived of needed medical care – for your neighbors in your community.
