Saint Alphonsus is celebrating 35 years of great causes by helping raise enough money to support the expansion of the Cancer Center Infusion Program. These men and women have contributed to our own Kat's Diaper Drive and so many other things. Saint Alphonsus's team has successfully delivered two of our children and I can't think of a better cause to help out.

Beginning on Wednesday, November 21 at the Boise Centre on West Front Street, Saint Alphonsus will be hosting Festival of Trees event that will light up the Treasure Valley with Christmas Spirit.

Things begin on Wednesday which is possibly one of the largest event nights of the year. Wednesday before Thanksgiving is the night where EVERYONE is in town visiting. Doesn't matter if it's Nampa or Boise, the family is visiting from somewhere. The bars will be packed including our big night out (CLICK TO PARTY WITH US WEDNESDAY).

If you can't make Wednesday that's okay because you have a weekend filled with holiday fun and some great photo opportunities. I've noticed so many people go to these events to take their family Christmas photos. No worries - you're not alone 🎄
