Matthews Medical Center

Festival of trees

Join us for our 12th annual Festival of Trees ceremony

Novant Health Matthews Medical Center will not be holding the annual Festival of Trees event physically this year, but the spirit of giving will still be present.

The 12th Annual Festival of Trees will move completely online this year as in-person viewing has been closed for the safety of our patients and visitors. Novant Health Matthews Medical Center has shifted the event to an online auction format. The tree lighting ceremony, which is the Thursday before Thanksgiving, November 19, 2020, will be virtual.

The trees will be displayed through an online bidding platform, which will showcase each tree with photos, information about the submitting organization and the source of inspiration for the tree. Community members will be able to bid on each donated tree. The auction will run online November 19 to December 14, 2020. The highest bidder at 12:00 p.m. on Monday, December 14, 2020 will “win” the tree. The winners will be notified December 14-15 and the trees will be available to be picked up starting December 15, 2020.

We sincerely appreciate your generous support. All proceeds from the Festival of Trees benefit local non-profits:

  • Matthews HELP Center
  • Matthews Free Medical Clinic
  • Levine Senior Center
  • C.O.S. KIDS- Child Development Campus
