The Fisher House 8th Annual Holiday Tree Festival took place 4 December 2009 at Travis Air Force Base, California.
The Travis Fisher House is one of more than 30 homes built on military installations by the late Zachary and Elizabeth Fisher. They generously created a foundation to help military families in need where they can stay without charge when one of their members is hospitalized.
This year, the auction raised approximately $2,700 for the Travis Fisher House. (U.S. Air Force photo by Civ/Nan Wylie)
