Gorgeous Decorations for a Great Cause
The Annual Gala of Trees is an event where local businesses and individuals volunteer to decorate a tree or wreath for the holidays to be entered into our silent auction. Everyone in the lake area is welcome to come in anytime during our regular Lake of the Ozarks BBQ restaurant business hours and place their bid, and at the end of the event, if you're the highest bidder, that decoration is all yours to take home!
Proceeds raised from the Gala of Trees are given to Candyland and The Idiot's Club to purchase toys for local children that might not otherwise have a happy Christmas. The more you bid, the better chances you have to win, and the more children can be given a happy holiday.
Gala Kick-off Party
Tuesday, Nov. 14
We'll be hosting a Gala of Trees Kick-off Party to get this awesome event started. Tickets are $20 each. Beginning at 5:30 pm, everyone that joins us for the party will get a first look at all of this year's gorgeous creations. You'll find everything from traditional holiday decorations to trees covered in gift certificates for services, merchandise, and exciting experiences.
Tickets for the evening also include a buffet, one glass of Gala Punch, and the chance to win the Gala Christmas Wreath being given away at 9 pm. You can pick up your tickets any time from now until then at Wobbly Boots Roadhouse.
Ugly Sweater Contest
Friday, Nov. 17
Get ready to get ugly! On Friday night during the Gala of Trees, we'll be hosting an Ugly Sweater Contest. You'll get a chance to wear that "ugly" holiday sweater you only pull out once a year, plus get a good chuckle at everyone else's fashion choice. Check up on your bids to see if you need to up the ante to win your favorite tree or wreath, plus enjoy some fun giveaways and prizes we'll have throughout the night.
Take Home Some Holiday Cheer
Saturday, Nov. 18
The last bids for the silent auction will be taken by 9 pm on Saturday night, but that doesn't mean this year's gala is over! There will be a live auction for even more fun stuff taking place once the silent auction ends. Come in to Wobbly Boots BBQ for some dinner and to keep an eye your bid so nobody outdoes you at the last minute, then stick around for a few evening cocktails and the live auction. It's all for a good cause, and it's going to be a great time.
Mark your calendars now and plan to join us for the 2017 Gala of Trees event inside our Lake of the Ozarks BBQ Restaurant. It's always a gorgeous and fun event that Wobbly Boots Roadhouse is proud to be a part of, and it benefits many local families. If you'd like to sponsor a tree or wreath at this year's gala, please contact Christy Janssen at 217-779-2768 or email her at firstname.lastname@example.org.
