Christmas in November

COLUMBIA (WACH) - Christmas came a little early if you were able to stop by the Columbia Metro Center over the weekend.

The Palmetto Health Foundation celebrated its 24th Annual Festival of Trees.

There were more than 188 full sized trees, wreaths, and tabletops.

All were available for people to bid on during a silent auction.

And it turns out it takes a village to come up with all these holiday decorations.

"We have a very creative and generous community that comes together and comes up with the creative ideas for the different trees and wreaths that are in the auction." says Lynn Hazel from the Palmetto Health Foundation.

The proceeds from the event go to benefit the Palmetto Health Children's Hospital.
