The Simmons Center will again be hosting a silent bid Christmas tree & wreath auction in the lobby of the Jack A. Maurer Convention Center, with 100% of the proceeds given to support each organization’s chosen charity. The Simmons Center Christmas Tree and Wreath auction has been a unique and successful event over the past sixteen years, raising over $40,000 since 2002 for charity.
The goal of the auction is to raise money for local charities and other non-profit organizations/groups in Stephens County. Some of the recipients from past auctions are Gabriel’s House, Youth Services, Humane Society, United Way, AAUW Scholarship Fund, and American Cancer Society, just to name a few. (Charitable organizations other than those in Stephens County are subject to approval by the Christmas Tree Auction Committee.)
