Fundraising with Festival of Trees, Holiday Cheer & Sounds of the Season

Holiday Magic is returning to Fort Lauderdale!  For Bonnet House that means a sixth annual fundraising event like no other.  Sign up today to be a part of the Holiday Magic Design Team. It will all start in December 2024 with a team of designers decorating Bonnet House trees, wreaths and/or centerpieces that will be on display and for sale throughout the month.  On December 6th, we will kick off the festivities with a Soirée throughout the house where guests can admire and purchase the beautiful displays. We will also be open for self-guided tours at night on December 7th and December 11-13 with something exciting each night; from Santa and his elves to Christmas storytelling, to Gin and jazz, to strolling carolers, and much more.  Be sure to sign up and become one of our Holiday Magic Designers and be featured throughout our social media channels and website.  Simply click on the Designer Packet link below.
