BECKLEY, WV (WOAY)- The 9th Annual Wonderland of Trees event sponsored by United Way of Southern West Virginia kicked off today.
“It culminates on Friday, November 17th, and we have a live auction at 6:00 pm. Folks can come out and bid on their favorite tree and it’s really exciting. Some of the trees go for $1,000 to $1,500. Anything that goes over $1,000, we wrap it up and we deliver it to the person,” said Michelle Rotallini, Executive Director of Southern West Virginia.
“People buy trees for all different kinds of reasons. People buy them for their homes because they don’t want to put any thought into decorating themselves. They just want to buy a pre-decorated tree. Some people buy them to donate back to a business or to a church or to a family in need,” said Rotallini.
All the proceeds help families celebrate Christmas!
