The FOTL is DSOSN’s signature fundraising event. It is a grand gala black-tie optional event, with live auction of elaborately decorated Christmas trees. The event culminates with a four-course dinner and dance. This year’s FOTL will be held on November 12th, at the Las Vegas Westgate Hotel (see website, 2024, for details)

Volunteers for this event will be assigned to various tasks and functions, such as logistics, guest-registration, and greetings/hospitality on the night of the event.
