IL - Joliet/60432 - Festival of Trees - SUN 11/24/13

The Joliet Festival of Trees was a first year event for the MWG and was put into motion by Heather Frelichowski.

The Festival invites groups to decorate a tree to be auctioned off. Proceeds from the ComEd Festival of Trees will benefit the Rialto Square Theatre and our mission,“To lead a performing arts community partnership to enrich the quality of life by encouraging artistic and cultural development.” The Rialto Square Theatre Foundation is a not-for-profit 501(c)(3) corporation.

Special thanks to MWG members who hand made and provided some extra special decorations.

To Jonathan Sylvester for his hand made tree skirt-an Imperial Cog:

Jonathan also crafted the tree topper and provided garland and ornaments:

and worked hard on assembling:

Thanks also to Kim Worley for her hand crafted ornaments and she also worked her butt off:

In addition, I was able to provide some decorated ornaments using MWG temporary tattoos:

and as a special incentive I was able to donate all 31 Burger King Star Wars toys from the release of Revenge of the Sith:
