Fantasy Tree Gala Hosts Holiday Turnout

The annual Fantasy Tree Gala was held this past Saturday, November 21st, at the Lamar Elks Lodge, raising funds to help support the activities of the Domestic Safety Resource Center for southeast Colorado.

Each year, just prior to Thanksgiving, committee members raise funds through the auction of decorated, donated Christmas trees and assorted wreaths, as well as a live and silent auction featuring merchandise from local retailers and service providers.  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.

The catered event featured performances from Leah Austin’s dance group, All the Right Moves Dance Studio in Lamar, a traditional visit from Santa Claus for young and old and voting on the People’s Choice awards for best decorated Christmas tree and wreath.  The evening was highlighted by live music from Jeffrey Alan Band.

Best decorated tree was won by Colorado East Bank and Trust for a unique display of black feathers, honorable mention was submitted by Taylor Plumbing.  People’s Choice for wreath was won by Brase Insurance with honorable mention going to Mulberry Ranch.
