PEORIA (25 News Now) - Crittenton Center’s largest fundraiser is back and at a new location.

The 14th Annual Festival of Trees will be an in-person event, having been virtual for the past three years.

It’s being held at the Holiday Inn & Suites at Grand Prairie.

“Celebrate Together” is this year’s theme with more than trees being sold at auction to the highest bidder, with proceeds funding the Crisis Nursery, the Child Development Center, and family services.

This year’s goal is to raise $200,000

The Festival of Trees is open to the public all day on Friday, and Saturday from 1 p.m. to 6 p.m.

A webpage is set up for registration, online bidding and other information.
