By  | 

MINOT, N.D. - It’s that time of year again for the Dakota Hope Clinic Festival of Trees.

Volunteers have been busy all week putting their final touches on their items for the 6th annual Festival of Trees celebration. It will feature a silent auction on decorated trees, doors and more.

The event benefits the Dakota Hope Clinic, a health center that assists families with unexpected pregnancies. The event kicks off Saturday morning at 10 a.m. Volunteers of the event say you don't want to miss out.

“It's a great way to begin our Christmas season. We have a lot of trees, a lot of wreaths, a lot of things to really start everyone's Christmas shopping and people can come bid on a tree and have it delivered already decorated," said Amanda Olson, voluntary chairman of the event.

Organizers say the event is not just about trees, but finding a way to give back to the community.

The entry cost to enter the festival is $10 in advance or $15 at the door all proceeds go to benefit the Dakota Hope Clinic.
