Celebri-Trees: Bid On Christmas Trees By Celebs To Benefit Keep America Beautiful
From October 15 through December 5, Smith & Hawken is holding an online auction of Christmas trees designed by actresses Julianne Moore, Brooke Shields, Angie Harmon and celebrity couple Eva Longoria Parker and Tony Parker to benefit Keep America Beautiful. KAB follows a practical approach that unites citizens, businesses and government to find solutions that advance the core issues of preventing litter, reducing waste, and beautifying public spaces.

Smith & Hawken joined forces with celebrity stylist Robert Verdi who worked closely with each celebrity to come up with their own individual designs using Smith & Hawken ornaments, garlands, light strings and garden gear."Every celebrity that I called to participate in this fundraiser for Keep America Beautiful immediately said 'yes'," states Verdi. "The holidays are filled with unique traditions, celebrations and memories. Each one of these tree designs captures the essence of holiday warmth and the love of time spent with family and friends."
