You know the holiday season has arrived when the Monroe Association for ReMARCable Citizens (MARC) announces that its Keys Federal Table Top Christmas Tree Auction is ready to go. Tuesday, December 10th in the Key West Westin Resort and Marina Ballroom 20 beautifully decorated trees will go up to the highest bidder. The trees, all between 3 ½ to 4 ½ feet tall, have been decorated by local businesses, private residents and artists. “It’s a really fun event” states MARC Public Relations Manager Gordon Ross, “we’ve created a great following of people who love to sponsor a tree and decorate it, as well as a group of people who love bidding on these trees. Since many in Key West don’t have the space in their home or business for a full size tree, this is the perfect solution. The best part for the winning bidders is that we wrap the fully decorated tree and place it directly in their car that evening to the winning bidders. The only thing the winning bidder needs to do is add water to the base and they are set for the holidays!”You can sponsor a tree for $100 and decorate it yourself, or with your friends or you can sponsor a tree for $250 and will will find a local artist or resident that wants to decorate it and they will buy the decorations and decorate the tree for you! Call 294-9526 STAR. 25 and speak to Gordon Ross about your sponsorship. ONLY 20 trees are available and they go fast!! Doors to the Westin Ballroom open at 5pm to preview the trees; the auction starts at 7pm. Admission is a $10 donation with hor’s d oeuvres by the Westin Resort and a cash bar.
