'Festival of Trees Home For the Holiday' hosted its open house on Wednesday evening to benefit patients at West Virginia University Hospitals.

'Festival of Trees' even has a raffle tree where businesses in the Suncrest Town Centre gave donations for a total package of little more than $3,800.

Pam Shriver, representative of the West Virginia University Rosenbaum Family House said that they used to host a ball but this year they've got a store front donated to them in the Suncrest Town Centre.

"Bring the joy to the community here in and let everybody come in and join us. All the proceeds from our shop actually go back to the WVU Hospitals for patient care and comfort," said Shriver.

The holiday shop runs completely on volunteer service. Shriver said if anyone is willing to volunteer to just stop by the shop located in the Suncrest Town Centre. The shop will remain open until the end of the year.
