Festival of Trees & Lights!

November 25, 2009 —

Today begins the annual Festival of Trees & Lights for Blank Children’s Hospital. Held at the Polk County Convention Complex, this could be a really fun thing to do after you stuff yourself with turkey or go shopping. Maybe a good thing to share with relatives in from another town? If you buy tickets yet today they are $3 at Des Moines area Hy-Vee and Dahl’s stores. If you buy ‘em at the door, they’re $5. Still a good price for a fun festive event that raises money and awareness for the local children’s hospital! Check it out!

Courtney Tompkins has been part of the DMU marketing team since Nov. 2005 and loves promoting a school she believes in so thoroughly. Proud daughter and patient of DMU alumni, Courtney knows, first-hand, that Des Moines University is doing a world of good. A fan of all outdoor festivals, fruity drinks and nearly all edibles, she has a hard time narrowing down her list of favorite places to go and things to do but lists the Iowa State Fair as an all-time fave. She loves her 8-minute commute to DMU from Urbandale, a suburb of Des Moines. She and husband Tyler are owned by three large dogs, Tonka, Tucker and Tank.
