Lifeguard and general man-about-SEAPARC Courtney Willson leads the way to an attractive Christmas tree display in the SEAPARC Leisure Centre lobby back in 2010. The trees are on site as part of a fundraising effort for the BC Childrens’s Hospital.

Festival of Trees

Annual tree decorating fundraiser will transform SEAPARC

The Festival of Trees transforms SEAPARC Leisure Complex into lush forests of beautifully decorated trees to raise funds for BC Children’s Hospital. As sponsors of this event, local businesses, organizations and individuals have the honour of decorating the trees in a unique, exciting and always beautiful fashion. The trees are displayed over the holiday season, beginning in late November with kick-off decorating events through to early January.

Congratulations to last year’s People’s Choice Award Winner: Sooke Montessori

Consider becoming a tree sponsor this year. Please contact Elizabeth Olsen, at 250-213-6716 or by email at sookefestivaloftrees@gmail.com if you would like us to send you a package or for more information.

The trees will remain up from December 2, 2014 – January 4, 2015
