Hope for the Holidays is our second annual holiday tree extravaganza and auction, presented by Catalent Biologics in partnership with New Hope for Families, to benefit families overcoming homelessness in our community. Come see more than 50 unique trees and wreaths decorated by local businesses, organizations, and private citizens. This event is free to attend and open to everyone!

Live Auction:

The Pavilion at Switchyard Park
1601 S. Rogers St.


Each of the fantastic trees and wreaths on display will be auctioned off during a fun live auction on the final night of the event, starting at 6 p.m. In addition to the lights and tinsel, the final night will also feature live entertainment and a selection of local food trucks!

We are very sensitive to all regulations and restrictions that need to be considered due to the COVID-19 pandemic. The Pavilion at Switchyard Park is an ideal venue for this event. In addition to its convenient location, it offers a great deal of open space for social distancing, the exterior walls can be opened to allow for increased ventilation, and the surrounding park offers a safe setting for families to come and enjoy the beautiful holiday decorations. Face masks will be required for attendees and we will provide masks and hand sanitizer for anyone who needs them.

All proceeds from this event will benefit families impacted by homelessness in our community. New Hope for Families is the only temporary emergency housing service in Monroe County where adults with children can find shelter together. We're on a mission to keep families together and break the cycles of homelessness and poverty. Won't you join us?
