2014 Symphony Begins Five-Day Run

The 14th Annual Symphony of Trees opened on Wednesday at 3 PM with a public viewing of trees and decor, sales from the Gift shop and tasty temptations from the Sweet Shoppe. Be sure to plan a visit to one of the many events scheduled each day through Sunday, Nov. 23.

A Welcome from the Chair


This year we will celebrate our 14th year for Symphony of Trees. We began with one event, Tapestry of Tables, held in the Trinity Center of St. Paul Lutheran Church in 2001.  Each year, Symphony of Trees has grown with more donors and sponsors, an extended variety of activities, and exceptionally beautiful trees and decorative items.  Last year we were able to donate $24,000.00 to each of the three benefiting charities: 

Henry County Court Appointed Special Advocate/Guardian ad Litem (CASA/GAL),

The Henry County Hospital,

The Center for Child and Family Advocacy, benefiting the children of Northwest Ohio.

This was made possible by the generous contributions made by you, as sponsors, donors, volunteers and participants.   We extend a whole hearted thank you to each of you!

The Symphony occurs during a special time of year when friends and family come together for many gatherings to celebrate the holidays.  This year’s theme, Home for the Holidays, is a tribute to this season of gatherings.  While there may be presents under the tree, this is really about the time we spend reconnecting with the special people in our lives.  Please join us at the events of Symphony and have a wonderful time during this special season.

Without your dedication and support, Symphony of Trees would not be able to provide financial support for the children of Henry County and the surrounding areas through our three charitable agencies.

Thank you again, and please come join us Home for the Holidays at the 2014 Symphony of Trees.

Sincerely yours,

Karlee Badenhop

Items offered during the live auctions of the Tapestry of Tables, Tailgate in the Trees and Gala are listed on the web page of each event.


New Venue Welcomes the Symphony of TreesArmory

Excitement abounds as the Symphony moves to a new location in 2014. The newly remodeled and refurbished Armory Arts and Event Center at 127 E. Clinton Street will serve as the host sight for the first time. Many in the area have fond memories of the ONG facility in Napoleon, and are happy to see it back as a member of the community. Be sure to stop in or attend an event to support the Symphony and it's efforts, but take time to look around and see what Steve and Julie Bush have done to create this local asset.


If you like the goals and objectives of the Symphony of Trees and wish to partner with us, please consider a donation which will assist our effort to improve the lives of local children.

The Symphony of Trees raises funds to support legal and medical programs for children in Henry County and Northwestern Ohio. It is an effort that requires the help, assistance and dedication of hundreds of volunteers, donors and supporters. Your help, support and generosity is greatly appreciated!
