At Gilead Group, we believe in not only investing in innovative technology but also in investing in the communities we are part of. Recently, we had the honor of being a Gold Sponsor for the 40th Anniversary Festival Gala & Auction hosted by Easterseals Midwest.

A Legacy of Service: 40 Years of the Festival of Trees
The Easterseals Midwest Festival of Trees has become a cherished annual event in Chesterfield, MO. It symbolizes the spirit of the holiday season and a commitment to making a meaningful difference. What began as a humble gathering in a mall, where shoppers voted on their favorite decorated Christmas trees, has blossomed into a grand celebration marking its 40th anniversary. The festival has raised over $12 million in its four-decade history. Among attendees, it stands as a testament to the enduring impact of community support.
The 40th Anniversary Gala: A Night of Cheer and Giving
This year’s Festival Gala & Auction was a spectacular affair. The event was filled with holiday cheer, delectable food, captivating entertainment, and the excitement of both silent and live auctions. It was an evening where friends mingled, spirits were lifted, and, most importantly, a difference was made. Gilead Group is proud to have played a part in sponsoring this milestone event.

Our support for Easterseals Midwest goes beyond financial sponsorship. It reflects our commitment to creating positive change in the communities we serve. The Festival of Trees aligns with our values of inclusivity and community building, and we are honored to play a part in its continued success.
As we reflect on the joyous memories created at the 40th Anniversary Festival Gala & Auction, we look forward to many more years of collaboration with Easterseals Midwest and other community partners. Together, we can build a future where everyone has equal opportunities to realize their goals, dreams, and aspirations.
