About Our Auction

These are tabletop, 18-inch wooden trees, cut by students at Columbus Technical College and uniquely painted by local and regional artists, including students, amateurs, and professional artists. They represent various themes, and there is truly something for everyone! They are on display at the Columbus Convention and Trade Center in Columbus, GA, from December 3-16. Online bidding will end at 3:00 pm on December 17th. You may then enter a proxy bid (which is your highest that you are willing to pay) or attend the Final Bid Party on December 17 from 5:00-7:00 pm at the W.C. Bradley Museum at 1017 Front Avenue. Final bids at 6:30 pm. If you are present and place the highest bid, you may check out and take your tree that evening. If not, you may pick it up the following day at the Pastoral Institute. For more information, email krozycki@pastoralinstitute.org.

About The Pastoral Institute

Changing Lives through Faith, Hope & Love

The Pastoral Institute was established in 1974 as a nonprofit, faith-based, non-denominational organization that offers education and counseling services to individuals, couples, and families. Our clinical counseling services have evolved over the years, demonstrating our firm commitment to meeting the unique and growing mental health needs of the diverse community we serve. Today we work with more than 150 local businesses to provide counseling to employees and their families. The Sarah T. Butler Children’s Center was created in 2010 to expand the services we offer children and adolescents. To help families find answers and support for their children and adolescents, we provide psychological testing for children as young as 18 months old for a wide range of psychological conditions, including Autism Spectrum Disorder, social skills group therapy, and counseling.
