Crafting Hope & Spreading Joy

Join us in spreading holiday cheer and make a profound impact on the lives of those affected by dementia. The Dementia Spotlight Foundation (DSF) proudly presents this festive event, inviting businesses, senior care communities, and individuals from all walks of life to come together in a heartwarming competition that truly matters. Imagine the joy of crafting a one-of-a-kind holiday wreath, brimming with festive goodies, and knowing that your creation will make a tangible difference. 

What is this event?

The Festival of Wreaths is our creative and charitable annually hosted fundraiser. Participants, including businesses, senior care communities, and individuals from the Atlanta/Tampa Bay areas, craft festive wreaths filled with goodies. These wreaths are then auctioned online, with all proceeds supporting DSF’s initiatives, such as educational programs and support groups for those impacted by dementia.

This event promotes friendly competition, with categories for different participants, and offers awards for popular vote and highest bids. It’s a heartwarming way to bring joy during the holidays while making a meaningful impact on dementia-related initiatives. Join us in spreading warmth, hope, and support to those in need.
