Sooke’s Festival of Trees raised just under $1,200 for B.C. Children’s Hospital.
The annual fundraiser, held throughout the Christmas season, saw more than a dozen sponsored Christmas trees line the hallways of SEAPARC Leisure Complex.
SEAPARC’s event is a satellite of the same type of tree festival held every year in Victoria, Port Alberni and Nanaimo.
More than 200 families in Sooke use the services of B.C. Children’s Hospital every year.
