The Gala of Trees is an event that takes place every year prior to Thanksgiving. Our Lake of the Ozarks family BBQ restaurant is filled with gorgeous decorated wreaths and trees for the holidays that you get to bid on silent auction-style. Bids may be placed anytime between Wednesday, November 14-Saturday, November 17.
The holiday trees and wreaths are pre-decorated by local businesses and organizations with all kinds of interesting items, some that you would expect, and some that may surprise you, such as wine bottles, coupons, event tickets, discounts, and even more! Proceeds from this silent auction are given to Candyland and The Idiot's Club to purchase toys for local children. So, not only do you get some amazing decorations to take home, but you're helping out your community at the same time!
Wednesday, Nov. 14
There is no charge to place a bid on trees and wreaths, but we will be hosting a ticketed Kick-Off Party beginning at 5:30 pm on Wednesday evening to really get this event started with a bang! Tickets are $20 each and include a buffet, one glass of Gala Punch, and a chance to win a very special Gala Christmas Wreath to be given away that night at 8 pm. This is a terrific way to kick-off not only this event but also your own holiday party scene.
Cans For Christmas
Friday, Nov. 16
Toys aren't the only items needed for the holidays. Local food pantries often need some help restocking their shelves, so we're dedicating Friday night during the Gala of Trees to this important cause. Bring 5 non-perishable items into Wobbly Boots Roadhouse on this day and receive an appetizer for half-price! (One per person) We have a lot of delicious appetizers to choose from, including those famous Wobbly Wings, and for some reason, they taste even better when they're half-price!
Silent Auction Ends & Live Auction Begins
Saturday, Nov. 17
Saturday is your last chance to come into the Boot and make your final silent auction bids. Don't take it for granted that your bid was the highest, because someone may have come in since you've been here and wanted that same gorgeous item just as much!
The silent auction closes at 8 pm, but will immediately be followed by a live auction for even more terrific stuff that you're going to want to take home. In other words, plan now to spend your Saturday night here with us!
We want to send a special thank you out to all of this year's Gala of Trees sponsors, listed on the flyer below, as well as to all of the wonderful businesses and organizations that take the time to decorate and donate fantastic trees and wreaths for this special occasion. Also, an extra-special, full of holiday cheer thank you goes out to Christy Janssen and Pam Leffringhouse. They are the ones responsible for starting this spectacular event which has raised and donated $85,000.00 over the past nine years!
Start your holiday season a little early right here with us at the 10th Annual Gala of Trees at Wobbly Boots Roadhouse in Osage Beach November 14-17, 2018. The feeling you will get when you walk into this holiday wonderland, plus the fact that you are helping to give someone else a beautiful holiday, will truly get you into the spirit of the season. Mark your calendars now and don't miss a moment of the excitement!
