Like magic, hundreds of volunteers transformed the Burr Homestead into a winter wonderland for the Fairfield Christmas Tree Festival. Local decorators and artists lent their skills to set up holiday room vignettes in the historic home. Visitors strolled the Holiday Boutique for handmade wreaths, trees, ornaments and other one-of-a-kind decorative items crafted by artisans. During the preview party and gala, attendees gathered under the festive tent for cocktails, food by Festivities, a silent auction and live music. Pam Bakey tried her luck in the Take-A-Chance raffle and won a Rolex watch, donated by Henry C. Reid & Son Jewelers. The Kennedy Center Artist Cooperative, which celebrates the empowerment and development of all individuals through the healing power of the arts, was the fundraiser’s recipient of the festival proceeds. NAMI Fairfield, the local chapter of the National Alliance on Mental Illness, was the recipient of funds raised by the raffle of two quilts crafted Fairfield artist Cecily Zerega. The festival once again proved to be a celebration of the human spirit.
