Each year the design community supports Florida International University’s Interior Architecture Department, ranked #9 in the nation, at the Festival of the Trees. The “trees” are conceived and created by leading designers and design firms, and auctioned at the event. Each tree is underwritten by generous sponsors. The trees are first displayed and then auctioned at the gala opening, which was attended by more than 900 guests in 2016.
This holiday extravaganza has raised more than $350,000 in funds that directly benefit interior architecture students.
