Dear Friends of the Festival of Trees:
We are excited to announce that Gatlinburg Festival of Trees, a tradition more than 30 years in the making, will continue in 2017 with Presenting Sponsor, Hospitality Solutions. The proceeds from Gatlinburg Festival of Trees 2017 will benefit Boys & Girls Club of the Smoky Mountains. Serving more than 1,600 local youth across Sevier County, the clubs offer youth a safe place to learn and grow through programs designed to build character and strengthen life skills while not at home or school.
We are very pleased to announce that during our second year as Presenting Sponsor for the Festival, the total proceeds donated to Boys and Girls Club of the Smoky Mountains from the 2016 Festival of Trees was over $30,000. With your help and participation, we hope to continue to improve on the Festival this year.
The Festival of Trees runs from November 22 to November 26 and kicks off with Candy Canes and Cocktails Reception on the evening of Tuesday, November 21. The Festival will feature a children’s craft and play area, entertainment throughout the week, photos with Santa Claus and, of course, the beautifully decorated Christmas trees and wreaths. Please join us in continuing the tradition of ringing in the Christmas season with the 2017 Festival of Trees!
If you are interested in sponsoring, participating in our event or donating silent auction items for our Kickoff Reception, please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org. The Festival will be open from 10 am to 7 pm Wednesday, November 22nd through Saturday, November 25th and on Sunday, November 26th from 10 – 5 pm.
We greatly appreciate your support in continuing this beloved Christmas tradition.
