The Geneva History Center's temporary gallery is filled with Christmas cheer, displaying 17 Christmas trees decorated by local charities. Our fourth annual Giving Trees display originated from board member Mary Bencini as a way to partner with other non-profits, assist with conveying their mission, raise some needed funds, and celebrate the holidays.
I encourage you to vote for your favorite tree and spread some holiday cheer. Every dollar = one vote. Votes can be made here at the History Center or on our website with a photo of each tree and a link to paypal.
