• The 2015 Barton Health Festival of Trees and Lights is December 2nd - 6th at the Montbleu Resort Convention Center. This four-day, family-friendly, holiday fundraiser benefits Lake Tahoe community health. Bring your family and friends and join us in celebrating the holidays while giving back to community health. 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. 

Celebrate the holidays with us while investing in the health of our community!

The Barton Foundation's largest fundraiser of the year and 7th annual Barton Health Festival of Trees and Lights will be December 2-6, 2015 at Montbleu Resort Convention Center.

Join the community in viewing a dozen decorated Christmas trees and wreaths and décor; enjoy local entertainment; visit Santa Claus and the Teddy Bear Hospital; and have the opportunity to bid on unique holiday items and décor in the silent auction. Trips, getaways, sports and entertainment items will also be raffled off -- all for an amazing annual cause that benefits our community’s health. The annual cause will be Barton's Level III Trauma Center.
