This fall's Festival of Trees will be the 26th for the Advocates for Disabilities. It will be held at the Owatonna Holiday Inn Hotel and Suites on November 18-26.

Though November is a way off, underwriters and corporate sponsors are now being sought for the event.

You can become an underwriter by purchasing a decorated tree. These trees range from a 4-foot pencil tree for $300 to a 7-foot pine for $575.

You can become a corporate sponsor for $600, $800 or $1,000. You'll receive a table for eight along with a commemorative gift. Corporate sponsors and underwriters also will receive recognition in the festival program and your name will be displayed by your tree. You will also get tickets to the opening night gala on Friday, November 18.

Contact Advocates for Developmental Disabilities at (507) 451-9769 to find out more or to order your tree. Orders should be in by the end of October. You may also call the above number if interested in decorating a tree or volunteering.
