The Sturges-Young Center for the Arts annually hosts a Christmas Tree and Season Gift Auction Fundraiser in early November to kick off the Holiday shopping season with flair. This year we are excited to announce that we have combined this traditional event with some new elements suggested by past attendees. The event will be held at Sturges-Young, benefiting both the SYCA  and the Road to Restoration! The event will kick off on Friday, November 3 at 5:30 p.m. with trees on display in the Beck Ballroom and Silent Auction items throughout the Lounge and Ballroom.

Holiday Kaleidoscope swings into full gear and opens to ticket holders with a silent auction in the lounge, the live auction featuring sponsored trees and wreaths, a holiday-themed dinner, and new this year a wine pull! It is sure to be an exciting, fun-filled holiday celebration! Tickets for the SYCA Live Auction are $50 per person, available in sponsored tables of 8, 4, or limited couples tickets. We cannot wait for you to attend!
