The lights and sparkle of twelve uniquely decorated holiday trees will captivate shoppers as they stroll through the Holiday Boutique. Donated by individuals, companies and civic groups, each tree will be available for sale via silent auction throughout the weekend. The feature is organized by the Minneapolis Fire Department and benefits Coats for Kids through Operation Warm. Last year, over $10,000 was raised to benefit Coats for Kids!
