Christmas in July: Doesn't Feel Like it, but Trees of Hope WI Works Year-Round

Fighting cancer through music, Christmas trees and holiday decorations is a year-long effort. Lives are depending on us.

We Have only just begun…

When “Trees of Hope WI” was just an idea, it was to be a tribute to our daughter, Lindsay Wenzel Lopez, who lost her 14-month battle against Leukemia on Nov 22, 2010. By the time we saw the “Reality” of the Inaugural 3-day event Nov 18-20, 2011… it had grown into a Celebration of life.

A celebration of the lives of those that are fighting devastating illnesses,those that are brave survivors, and honoring those that have left us.

Trees of Hope WI is our Signature Fundraising Event and has companies, groups and individuals sponsor Themed Christmas Trees, Holiday Wreaths and other décor which will be displayed at the event and auctioned off- with the funds raised to benefit the Leukemia-Lymphoma Society, Blood Center of WI, BeTheMatch, and other medical facilities in SE Wisconsin.  We are actively securing sponsors. Promote your business while benefitting a very worthy cause. Donations are tax deductible.

Our mission is to support the Medical professionals that provide constant care
for all of us, the researchers that continue to refine treatments and protocols
to improve outcomes, and the medical facilities such as the Blood Center of WI
and others here in SE Wisconsin.

We have received such wonderful support from the community and are now planning for our 2nd Annual Trees of Hope WI Celebration and Auction      Nov 16-18, 2012.

We are proud to say that our inaugural event raised over $15,000, and we continue to work to raise that total to help local patient services. Our goal for 2012 is $50,000... How will you help us reach that goal?

We invite you to join our efforts. We encourage you to check out the information
on our website, or call to get your questions answered.

Till Next Time...
