Thousands raised in annual Wonderland of Trees auction

Fayette County

People were getting into the holiday spirit as the United Way of Southern West Virginia held its annual Wonderland of Trees auction.

Each festively decorated tree was auctioned to raise money for the 44 different nonprofit organizations served by the United Way of Southern West Virginia. 

Christina Cowley, the Community Impact Coordinator for the United Way, said it was great to see so many people coming out to support their communities.

“These trees are decked out with tons of swag, but these people are contributing to our community so to see everyone here supporting our community, thinking about the kids and the less fortunate, it means the world,” Cowley said.

This year, 37 Christmas trees were decorated by local businesses. Some trees were auction for more than $1,000.
