From Elk Valley Festival of Trees Facebook page:
“What is Elk Valley Festival of Trees about? Well the beautiful TREES!
This is a three week fundraising event that will become a must-see holiday tradition in the Elk Valley. We will proudly display 10 of the most dazzling Christmas Trees for all to admire this side of the North Pole. Open to the public, the festival invites visitors to browse through the holiday display and cast a ballot for their favourite tree.
Fernie Rotary’s goal is sponsoring this event is to raise a large amount of funding for multiple community organizations across the Elk Valley at one time.
How does Elk Valley Festival of Trees work?
A business sponsors a tree and chooses a local community organization/not for profit or charity to work with. Together with a Tree Designer, the business and the chosen community organization will decide on a theme for decorating the tree. They will all come together to decorate the tree.
The local community organization can raise a significant amount of funding through several ways:
1) a GRAND PRIZE – People’s Choice Award of up to $1000 (based on 10 trees sponsored) for the tree that receives the most votes.
2) For each vote a tree receives, the community group/not for profit/charity will receive $3.25.
3) During the three week period the trees will be part of a silent auction. Minimum bid will be $500 and 100% of the tree auction proceeds will go to the sponsored community organization.
*Funds raised in the Elk Valley will stay in the Elk Valley
Come out and enjoy the many events taking place during the Elk Valley Festival of Trees and vote to support the local community organizations/not for profits/charities!
Looking forward to seeing you there!”
