The elves have been very busy. Over 300 volunteers have been working hard to make sure that Prince George Civic Centre has been transformed into a magical place of whimsy and wonderment. The 17th annual Spirit of the North Healthcare Foundation fundraising event is open to the public today (Friday) at noon. Visitors can walk around the “forest” of beautiful designer decorated big trees, little trees and seasonal wreaths or they can visit the enchanting gingerbread “village” creations in the front foyer.
There is a gift shoppe with one of a kind gifts.
Some trees are in the live Gala Auction tonight while others will be part of a silent auction that ends Sunday, Nov. 28 at 4 p.m. There are raffle tickets on three trees, two wreaths and a two foot designer tree. For some of the best entertainment of the season be sure to drop by the Civic Centre for talented musicians, singers and dancers who will be performing throughout the festival.
Children can spend time in an activity and crafts centre.
The Festival of Trees is a way for the Spirit of the North Healthcare Foundation to thank the public for its support over the years and to raise funds to support and enhance healthcare in the community and at UHNBC.
