A Holiday Tradition for the Love of Down Syndrome

Every holiday season, Down Syndrome Organization of Southern Nevada hosts its annual fundraising event, the Festival of Trees and Lights. Typically held the week before Thanksgiving, the Festival of Trees and Lights brings the community, DSOSN members and families together for a night of giving and celebration. Attendees have the opportunity to bid on a variety of beautifully decorated trees, wreaths, menorahs and gifts – ranging in value from $50 to $10,000 – to help raise funds for DSOSN’s programs and services.

From Idea to Reality: The Festival of Trees and Lights

This long-standing and unique celebration was started by the DSOSN founding members in 1988. Over the years, the popularity of the event grew into one of the most elegant Christmas Galas of the holiday season.
