The Enchanted Forest is a festive fundraiser for the local charity Marillac, which provides mental health care for troubled children and families, now in it's 20th year. Decorated trees and wreaths donated to Marillac will be on display at the Convention Center from November 8-11, 2012 and free to view by the public. The decorations are also available for purchase through a silent auction.
