Vote For NBP – 4th Annual Festival of Trees at The Mall at UTC

The 4th Annual Festival of Trees at The Mall at UTC has begun!  The staff at Nathan Benderson Park have meticulously and thoughtfully decorated our tree with unique nautical ornaments, sea creatures and calming, colorful accents that will be sure to warm your heart this holiday season!

Votes and silent auction bids will be collected through an online platform, called GiveSmart. One of the biggest advantages is that you can vote and bid anytime, from anywhere. You will also receive text messages with reminders and updates on your bid item(s).

To access the event site, go to or text UTCTREES to 76278. Make sure to vote for tree #127. Love this tree so much and want to take it home? In addition to voting our tree as your favorite, you can bid on purchasing the tree. To place your bid, choose our tree at #126. Bids start at $150 and money raised will go to support Nathan Benderson Park.

Thank you for your participation and support!  Wishing you a very Happy Holiday!
