CASA to host Festival of Trees

The Rolla Daily News

The Court Appointed Special Advocates (CASA) of South Central Missouri and MO-SCI will host the 4th annual Festival of Trees.

The event will be held both in person and virtually to facilitate the guests and sponsors. There are several options available to allow guests to attend and for donors to contribute.

Happy Hour will begin at 6 p.m., with the event scheduled from 7 p.m. – 9 p.m, Saturday, Dec. 5 at the Signature Event Center, 1701 Martin Springs Drive, in Rolla.

The theme this year will be Christmas in Candyland.

“We will be taking you through a Winter Candyland with our life-size Candyland gameboard, complete with prizes,” CASA Executive Director Matthew Evans said. “And don’t forget the trees. We can’t have the Festival of Trees without auctioning off the most beautiful and one-of-a-kind Christmas trees donated by our amazing sponsors.”

Many of the festivities, including the auctions, the raffles and parts of the evening, will be available online.

Sponsorships and tickets may be purchased online at or by calling 573-426-5437.
