Civic Engagement Thursdays: Festival of the Trees

Trees the season to be jolly!

Each year, Florida International University’s Architecture department holds the Festival of the Trees. And each year South Florida’s design community supports this festival and raises awareness of the issues of deforestation. Architecture students design their trees and auction them at the event. This holiday extravaganza has raised more than $150,000 in funds to benefit the students themselves and enables them to buy annual material used for projects. The winning bidders get to keep these extraordinarily beautiful pieces as holiday decorations in their homes and/or offices. It’s a great way to help your community and buying your necessities for the festivities. Make sure you get a ticket soon, last year over 600 guests attended and all the trees were sold!
