Coming up on December 13th from 4:00 PM until 9:30 PM is the 5th Annual Festival of Trees Charity Fundraiser being held at the Toms River Elks Lodge.

This free event invites various nonprofit organizations to decorate their very own holiday tree and then it is your job to vote for your favorite by submitting cash or check donations towards their cause. The winner with the most votes ($1 = 1 vote) will receive large cash prizes plus 100% of the donations that they receive. Donations can be made ahead of time.

The evening will include live music from the Ocean County Jazz Band, Garden State Philharmonic Youth Orchestra, Lilian Dean Dance Studio, the Brother Pete Duo and more!

Plus, get ready for their first ever Grinch-a-thon for the kids with games, movies and crafts in the Whoville room as well as complimentary refreshments and desserts including indoor s'mores and a hot chocolate bar!!

And don't forget to test your luck with their tricky tray and MEGA 50/50!
