For 42 years Entre Nous has hosted the Holiday Tour of Homes in Manatee County as our only fundraiser. With Covid restrictions still in place, Entre Nous thought that it would be in everyone's best interest for safety, to once again pause this year's Tour and move our event online with the 2nd annual Holiday Festival of Trees Online Auction. We hope to bring back that wonderful Tour of Homes Holiday tradition in 2022.
The members of Entre Nous would still like to be a part of kicking off your holiday season just as they have for 43 years with the Festival of Trees Online Auction. Now you can enjoy some of the Holiday beauty that has been displayed in past Tour Homes in your own home. Many items to bid on are hand decorated by the talented members of Entre Nous along with items donated by generous members of our community and our Life members to put under your tree or treat yourself.
Bidding will open at 12:15 am on November 24th. The starting bid for each item is listed on the site with bid increments. The bidding will close at 12 noon on Saturday, December 4th. Payment instructions and pick-up options for Sunday, December 5th from Noon to 4 pm will be emailed with the winning bidder invoices following closing the auction site.
