Deck the Halls taking on new look this year

ABERDEEN, S.D. ( – The Avera Foundation will once again host its annual Deck the Halls event, but this year’s version will look a bit different.

Because of the current pandemic, the event will be virtual. While there will be a new twist on festivities, the financial needs remain the same, according to Amy Blackstone of the Avera Foundation.

People can still purchase a ticket for the event, although the ticket will not be for admission but rather for a chance to win a prize.

There is also something new this year.

Blackstone said instead of having 12 decorated Christmas trees on display this year, Deck the Halls will feature 12 major packages this year.

To participate, bid and purchase items and learn more visit or call (605) 622-5887.
