• Thanks to all of the sponsors, volunteers,entertainers and attendees who helped to make the 2016 Barton Health Festival of Trees and Lights a huge success. This four-day, family-friendly, holiday fundraiser benefits Lake Tahoe community health. We will be updating the site throughout the year with information about our 9th Annual Festival of Trees and Lights which will be held from November 30 to December 3, 2017 so stay tuned! About the Festival

  • Our sponsors and donors are the life blood of the Festival of Trees and Lights and The Gala. Without their support, we couldn't bring the community together to raise funds for our community health. We are forever grateful! Become A Sponsor | View Our Sponsors

  • The Teddy Bear Hospital is one of many activities kids enjoy during the Festival. This interactive space allows children 12 and under to learn about hospitals in a safe, "no poke" environment from Barton Health's wonderfully caring doctors, nurses and staffers - all with the help of a complimentary teddy bear.

  • The Gala is Barton Health's largest fundraiser for community health - all proceeds benefit the Community Health Endowment. The black-tie dinner begins with a signature cocktail and silent auction, and is followed by an entertaining live auction, heartfelt call to action, and finishes with celebratory dancing into the night. Key community members band together to impact our community's health at this elegant, inspiring and extraordinarily fun fundraiser. Learn More about sponsoring, purchasing a table or tickets.
