The Baptist Easley Hospital Foundation is gathering sponsorships for our 2018 Festival of Trees. We are hoping to have a large and varied number of sponsors for trees, events, and the festival in general. All proceeds from the Festival of Trees will go to support the Patient Care Fund at Baptist Easley Hospital. Last year, over 350 people attended the Festival of Trees!
This year, we are adding 4ft trees and wreaths that will be placed in a silent auction for one week after the Grand Illumination on November 29th. The auction will close on December 6th with pick up of the items on December 7th.
Everyone visiting The Festival of Trees during the month will be given the opportunity to register for a prize drawing to win a $100 Walmart gift card. All you have to do is vote for the People’s Choice Award. The drawing will take place at noon on December 19, and the winner of the prize will be notified by phone. The People’s Choice Award winner will get a prized trophy to showcase at their business for the year.
Tree Decorations-This year, there is a change in decorating the trees. We are requesting company marketing materials not be used as decoration on the trees. A formal printed sign, with your company logo will be placed in front of your tree or wreath.
Anyone sponsoring a tree can decorate the tree with whatever theme they choose, or for an extra $50 dollars added to the sponsorship, we will have a separate decorator garnish the tree.
