There are photo booths, a silent auction,  a DJ will provide the music, and Disney Princesses and other well-known characters will be on hand for the enchanted evening.

“All funds go to LeBonheur Children’s Hospital and we let them decide where the most need is and just utilize the money where they see best,” said Kim Harbin, president of Gumtree TWIGS.

More than a thousand people are expected at the big event.  The theme this year is “Alice in Wonderland.”
