A large, 7-item pizza from Bill’s Pizza

6 tickets to the Enchanted Christmas display, opening the day after Thanksgiving.

Nearly 50 decorated and themed trees were on display for viewing at Prescott Gateway Mall. These trees, donated and decorated by local businesses and organizations, are also available for bidding or buy-it-now purchase, with all proceeds benefitting Kind Defined.

As one of the largest gathering of Christmas trees in the greater Prescott area, don’t expect to find skimpy, Charlie Brown trees. As Kind Defined explains on their website, these trees have been, “...decorated outrageously, glamorously, elegantly, themed or even comically by local businesses, organizations and schools.”
