SStarted in 2010, Copper Mountain College Foundation’s Festival of Wreaths has exploded into the holiday kickoff event of the Morongo Basin. The Bell Center transforms into a winter wonderland the Sunday before Thanksgiving, November 19, 2023. Over 50 Local businesses, service clubs and individuals create magnificent one-of-a-kind wreaths, centerpieces, and trees all for sale to benefit the students of Copper Mountain College.
Sandy Smith, Executive Director of the Copper Mountain College Foundation, says, “This is an event we look forward to all year long. It has become the unofficial start of the holiday season here in the Morongo Basin. It’s a time for our old friends to come by the college, time to introduce new friends to our campus and students, time to celebrate, and of course, time to raise money to help our local college students. Our community is so very generous and that is magnified during the holidays. The businesses and organizations that create these wreaths, centerpieces, and trees pour their hearts into making them to wow and amaze. And every year they get better and better! I hope everyone can join us on November 19 to enjoy the goodwill that overflows from this event.”
