Trees for Hope in Upton in December
Trees for Hope Festival is a community-wide event featuring uniquely decorated trees as a fundraising effort in which participants can donate an artificial tree in honor of someone, a special cause, or any theme of one’s choosing. Local businesses are invited to show their support of this event as a sponsor with donations of gift certificates or monetary contributions, and the general public has the opportunity to view the trees which creates the spirit of the season.
The event will take place in conjunction with the Women’s Club Holiday Bazaar on Dec. 2 and Dec. 3 at St. Paul’s Hall in the lower level of St. Gabriel’s Church, 151 Mendon St, Upton.
Admission is Free. Tickets can be purchased for a chance to win a tree to take home for the holidays.
This year’s event will support two organizations, the DetecTogether, a local non-profit organization that promotes early cancer detection and the Alzheimer’s Association.
Anyone interested in submitting a decorated tree, supporting the event, or participating as a volunteer may contact Penny Bentley at [email protected]
