Bells were jingling as the holidays got an official merry welcome from Twin City Ballet at the highly anticipated 6th Annual Festival of Trees Auction and Gala that took place before the ballet Saturday, December 6th at the Monroe Civic Center Theatre. A capacity crowd filled the Jack Howard Theatre lobby where patrons gathered to bid on beautifully decorated trees and auction packages created by TCB board members, as well as other local designers. Thurman’s Food Factory turned up the cool factor with an impressive menu of hors d’oeuvres and desserts that turned the lobby into a land of sweets.

This year’s gala performance was sponsored by the Northeast Louisiana Arts Council, Monroe-West Monroe Convention and Visitors Bureau, Moss Eyecare, Sammy and Therese Naegam and Monroe Athletic Club.
