Why Sponsor A Tree?

Be part of one of the area’s most exciting holiday happenings! The Festival of Trees is a family event featuring a unique display of beautifully decorated trees and fun for all ages. Join us by sponsoring a tree, which can be decorated reflecting your interests, your business, or a holiday theme. Take advantage of this opportunity to enhance your company’s visibility and image. The only cost to you is your donation of a tree, lights, and decorations. Our sponsors include individuals, families, civic and social organizations, hospitals, schools, and businesses. All tree donors will be recognized during our Virtual Opening Day video. As a supporter of the event, your organization will be featured on our social media pages.
