Everyone loves a tree lighting this time of year, but there's just one problem: they don't involve alcohol. The good folks at Wölffer Estate Vineyard solved that problem by lighting up their vines every year with over 15,000 LED lights, followed by a cocktail party. This year, the event will take place on Saturday, December 7, and there is a new event. The Festival of Trees will feature Christmas trees decorated by local designers, which will be auctioned for charity during the cocktail party.
Before all this gaiety, the vineyard will host an outdoor holiday gift bazaar featuring offerings from local vendors and artists.
Tickets for the cocktail party are $90 for adults and $45 for under 21s. A portion of all proceeds will be donated to Maureen's Haven homeless outreach and Fighting Chance cancer counseling center.
