COBB COUNTY, Ga. -

It's a unique fundraiser that turns the beauty of a green Christmas tree into the beauty of green money for local charities.

The Cobb Galleria Festival of Trees is back for a fourth year and admirers can vote for their favorite tree or charity by donating money in envelopes designated at each tree. The tree with the highest monetary donation will receive an additional donation from the hotel.

There are 37 trees on display this year until January first.
