The 10th Annual Fantasy Tree fundraising event will be held on Saturday, November 23rd, 2013, at 6:00 p.m., at the Lamar Elks Lodge, 28157 US Hwy 287, in Lamar.

The Fantasy Tree auction is a fundraising event to support the maintenance and operations of a four county “Safe House” which is operated by the Domestic Safety Resource Center (DSRC). Since their inception in 1986, the Domestic Safety Resource Center has provided domestic violence support and resources to families and individuals living in Baca, Cheyenne, Kiowa and Prowers Counties.

Fantasy Tree Donation

In 2012, the Fantasy Tree auction raised $7000 for the Domestic Safety Resource Center

“For the past three years, the Fantasy Tree auction has been able to contribute $7,000.00 each year, to the support and operation of the DSRC Safe House. In keeping with our 10th year of fundraising, our goal is to reach a donation amount of $10,000.00 this year. What a great way to truly celebrate ten years of charitable giving, and support this important community resource,” states Lisa Thomas of the Fundraising Committee.

The public, of all ages, is invited to attend a fun filled evening at the 10th Annual Fantasy Tree event. The evening will begin with a social hour, featuring live music from The Main Street Ringers, special holiday entertainment by the senior dancers from All the Right Moves Dance Studio, hors d’oeuvres and viewing of auction items, moving into the traditional live auction of beautifully decorated Christmas trees, wreaths and various items generously donated by local merchants and individuals. Santa Claus will be in attendance to greet guests and have photographs taken. The evening will conclude with a holiday dance with live music provided by the magnificent Jeffrey Alan Band.
