Since 1978, members of the Dr. Forrest L. Flashman Guild have put together the annual Seattle Festival of Trees event to support care at Seattle Children's. This year there are 21 specially designed trees that will be on display at the Fairmont Olympic Hotel from November 19-30. Each has it's own unique theme and style and are available for purchase. Proceeds will benefit uncompensated care at Seattle Children's Hospital and the Autism Center at Seattle Children's.

Families are also invited to a free family-friendly Festival of Trees Celebration on Sunday, November 20, from 1:00-4:00 pm at the Fairmont Olympic Hotel. There will be live musical entertainment from the St. Jude Parish and Seattle Girls' Choir, pictures with Santa, and a lighting of the grand tree in the hotel lobby. Guild member Elna Duffield showcases some of the one-of-a-kind gift ideas that are available in the Holiday Boutique at the Festival of Trees Celebration.
