About Samaritan Health

Host a Friends & Family Watch Party

A North Country Festival of Trees has sparked holiday cheer in Northern New York for nearly two decades. This year will look a bit different, but we look forward to safely celebrating the 12 Days of Christmas with you!

Although we are unable to bring you traditional Festival of Trees events, like the Gala and Sugarplum Ball, we are excited to host a Live Tree Showcase on Friday, December 4th. During this one-hour program, which streams online and on WNYF Fox 28 from 7:00-8:00 p.m., we will auction off 10 trees and provide holiday entertainment — and you can participate from the comfort of your own home by hosting a Festival of Trees Watch Party!

How It Works

  1. Browse the Watch Party packages below and submit the form with your party size and catering choice. Orders must be placed by Sunday, November 22nd.
  2. We’ll handle your food order and will contact you to confirm the details of your delivery or pick-up. Wine and other items may be delivered in advance of food and will require an adult (age 21 or older) to receive the delivery.
  3. Gather your family or a small group of friends to tune in at 7:00pm on Friday, December 4th. Don’t forget to bid on your favorite trees!
