Three elaborate playhouses will be the centerpiece of an awareness- and fund-raising event Nov. 9 for The Treehouse, a nonprofit that helps mothers and babies in need. At the end of the event, the playhouses will be auctioned.

The event, called Treevent, will be from 7 to 10 p.m. at the Wichita Marriott. Tickets are $60, available online at

Treevent will include cocktails, hors d’oeuvres, exploration of the playhouses custom-built by local contractors, and games starting at $10.

The playhouses come in the form of a pirate ship built by Snodgrass & Sons Construction Co., a princess castle by Farha Construction, and a train built by Hentzen Contractors. Members of several churches are sponsoring the event.
