This year's FHN Festival of Trees Gala is virtual –
or more specifically, VirtuALE!


We'll provide everything for your own VirtuALE GALA!

We’ll connect with you via the internet* on November 20 for entertainment and live fun – and prizes. And of course, what would an FHN Gala be without wonderful food? We’ll have a refreshment box with delicious appetizers, treats, and other surprises ready for pick up on Thursday, November 19 or Friday, November 20 before the Gala begins.** In keeping with our VirtuALE theme this year, you’ll also enjoy great craft beers from our three local breweries, Generations Brewing Company, Lena Brewing Company, and Wishful Acres Farm and Brewery.

Please register by Wednesday, November 11.
If you register early by Friday, October 30, we’ll add a t-shirt with our great VirtuALE graphic to your refreshment box.***



That’s not all! Our auction will also be virtual this year.

Registered gala participants will be able to bid on auction packages beginning Saturday, November 14.
The auction will be opened to the public on Saturday, November 21 for any items that did not receive the minimum bid.

This year we’re raising funds to help FHN respond to community emergencies like the current COVID-19 pandemic by ensuring that we have necessary supplies, such as personal protective equipment and infection control devices, as well as strong processes to enable us to best serve the community’s healthcare needs during any emergency.

You can also make a contribution to support FHN’s emergency preparedness efforts by sending a check made out to the FHN Foundation to The FHN Foundation, 1045 West Stephenson Street, Freeport, IL 61032 or giving online.

Thank you for supporting FHN – virtually!
