Deck the Trees – A Season of Giving
November 18, 2022 – January 2, 2023
Alley Theatre and George R. Brown Convention Center
Charlene Brandau and Sandy Shipley, Event Chairs
Deck the Trees is now an established part of Houston’s annual holiday tradition, with a spectacular display of trees showcased at both Alley Theatre and George R. Brown Convention Center along Avenida de las Americas. Each location featured a signature 20-foot tree. The signature tree at George R. Brown, themed “Together, a Better Environment” was designed by Taylor DeMartino of DeMartino Design Group and sponsored by Oxy and United. The signature tree at Alley Theatre, themed “Give Love, Give Style” was designed by Macy’s and sponsored by Valerie Jalufka.
A very special thank you goes to Co-chairs Charlene Brandau and Sandy Shipley who helped raise more than $174,000 to support Alley Theatre’s artistic, education, and community engagement programs. And most of all, without the fabulous talented volunteer designers, this event would have not been possible. They truly transformed the Alley and the windowscape along the Avenida into holiday magic.
