Editor: Chesapeake Cancer Alliance would like to thank the sponsors, donors, volunteers and attendees who supported our eighth CCA Festival of Trees at the Bel Air Armory. We had a very successful weekend and all proceeds support Upper Chesapeake Health's Kaufman Cancer Center's Cancer LifeNet Program which provides free support and services to cancer patients in Harford County and western Cecil County. The festival owes its success to the many businesses, organizations, individuals and CCA volunteers who decorated and donated trees, wreaths and gingerbread houses which were sold by silent auction.

The mezzanine hall at the Baltimore Marriott Waterfront Hotel had the look of a good cocktail hour. Lots of cocktail dresses and smiling faces. But, ask the right question, and you could immediately pick up on a certain undertone of trepidation ... a bit of fear about what was ahead. Welcome to "Dining in the Dark," a fundraising party for the Foundation Fighting Blindness. After diners were seated at the usual round banquet tables, the lights would be turned off. For 30 minutes, they would eat in pitch darkness, and be served by a visually impaired wait staff.

The Bonvegna family made a tradition of attending the Kennedy Krieger Institute's Festival of Trees almost since the event began in 1990. Now, led by Theresa Bonvegna, owner of an art school in downtown Bel Air, family members are festival exhibitors. Bonvegna, the director of the Bel Air School of Art, has pulled family, friends and a student, well-versed in dragon lore, into creating this year's exhibit, dubbed "Knights Before Christmas." Since July, they have been building on their idea for a castle that would stand between two 7 1/2-foot tall pines.

Mary Graul spent more than a week cutting and fitting pieces for a 2 1/2 -foot-tall replica of a Chesapeake Bay lighthouse. She fashioned railings, windows, stairs, doors and a flashing light. And just about everything is edible. The lighthouse is one of more than 300 items entered in design contests for this year's Kennedy Krieger Festival of Trees, which opens a three-day run today at the Maryland State Fairgrounds in Timonium. The trees, wreaths and gingerbread pieces are sold to help raise money for Kennedy Krieger Institute in Baltimore.
