We can’t wait for the holiday season to get here, and for one simple reason: decorated Christmas trees!

The BC Children’s Hospital Foundation is bringing the annual Festival of Trees to Victoria again in November. This local tradition is the unofficial kick-off to the holiday season and is going into its 27th year in just two short months.

All proceeds support the BC Children’s Hospital and the most urgent needs of children in BC today through continued investment in research, education, advanced technology and care.

Last year, the foundation raised over $170,000 through this event with over 80 local businesses and organizations participating.

This year, your company could be one of the proud businesses involved with this amazing tradition! If you own or work with a local firm, we have 7 good reasons why you should get involved with this festival:

Brand recognition

Your business will gain recognition by partnering with the most recognized brand in British Columbia and sponsoring a well-covered event.

Exciting team-building activity

Your team will get the opportunity to come and share the holiday spirit and decorate a tree together at Deck the Halls Ball on November 14th!

The love of the people

Over 650,000 people are estimated to go see the trees at The Bay Centre in downtown Victoria during the holiday season. They’ll all get to see the great work your team has done!

Supporting a great cause

All of your hard work will contribute to a great cause and support countless children suffering from illnesses during the holiday season and beyond.

On average, 22 children from Vancouver Island get treated at the BC Children’s Hospital each day–that’s almost one per hour.

More media coverage for you

Last year, this festival got over 4 million media impressions. If you’re looking to promote your business, the Festival of Trees will give you some sweet brand recognition on a huge silver platter.
