Festival of Trees
The Virginia Community Foundation, Essentia Health-Virginia Regional Foundation, Laurentian Chamber of Commerce, and the City of Virginia-ReVive are pleased to announce that the 18th Annual Festival of Trees will be held November 14th-17th at the Virginia Elks Club. As you know, this event has grown into an annual tradition for our community to kick off the holiday season.
Every year, we count on local businesses and individuals to support this event through sponsorship. Hundreds of people attend Festival of Trees and the entire region looks to businesses who help make this event possible. All Festival of Trees proceeds will benefit the Virginia Community as we collaborate to make our community stronger and bring an economic impact to Virginia and the people that we support through our missions. Contributions can be used for this such as to provide community grants, educational programs for our community business leaders, beautification, as well as benefit local patients in our area. With your help, we will be able to make our community, businesses, patients and visitor experience the best when working, living or visiting Virginia and our Regional area.
As we prepare for another Festival of Trees, the Virginia Community Foundation, Essentia Health-Virginia Regional Foundation, Laurentian Chamber of Commerce and the City of Virginia-ReVive hope you, your loved ones, and co-workers are in good health and good cheer.
