The Women of Woodside debuted a new fundraising event for the 2018 Holiday Season – Deck The Halls – and, it was a great success! This group of 400+ residents of Woodside and The Village at Woodside created beautifully themed Christmas trees, wreaths and table centerpieces which were on display at The Savannah, a Southern Living Inspired Model Home located in The Village.  In keeping with Women of Woodside’s philanthropic purpose, visitors purchased tickets to tour The Savannah and silent bids were accepted for every holiday item in the home.

In addition to creating a Christmas wonderland in The Savannah, these ladies also created thousands of handcrafted holiday decorations – everything from wreaths to ornaments to reindeer crafted of wine corks – which were sold at a craft boutique at The Reserve Club during the Deck The Halls tour. This inaugural event for Women of Woodside raised $10,000 which will be distributed among local charitable organizations spreading holiday cheer this season.
