SLI Christmas Tree auction brings big bucks to organization

By  | 

TOPEKA (WIBW)-- A Topeka holiday tradition is back in full swing.

SLI held their Festival of Trees Auction Party Friday night at AG Hall.

This year's event features more than 60 trees, wreaths, mantlescapes and porchscapes, created by local groups, businesses and individuals.

We heard one tree in particular went for $2,000.

Festival of trees benefits SLI's programs for people with intellectual and developmental disabilities.

13's Ralph Hipp served as Friday nights emcee.

You can check out the final day of the festival from 8:00a.m. to 4:00p.m. Saturday. Santa will be there with a pancake feed in the morning!
