Festival of Trees
The 8th Annual Festival of Trees, sponsored by the Carpinteria Lions Club, will begin Friday, November 24, 2017. Our 16 day event has a new home. Thanks to the Carpinteria Arts Center who has opened its heart and door to allow the event to continue at the Art Center facility located at 855 Linden Ave. in Carpinteria.
The net proceeds will benefit three local non-profits this year:
- Carpinteria Arts Center
- Friends of the Library and
- Rebuild Rancho Allegre Boy Scouts Camp
- Movies in the Park
The Festival of Trees event began eight years ago. The inaugural year featured 13 beautifully decorated trees and raised $14,000 for the Culinary Arts program at the Carpinteria High School. The 2016 Festival of Trees, benefiting the Boys & Girls Club of Carpinteria, featured 25 trees and raised $26,500 in ticket sales – all tickets are sold at $1 each.
The Lions Club is now requesting local individuals, businesses, service originations and non-profits for tree sponsorship to showcase creativity and decorating skills and create a beautifully decorated and adorned Christmas tree. All Christmas trees are donated by The Carpinteria Lions Club and will be set-up inside the building in individual showcase stalls.
Spaces are limited. Please get your request to participate to Festival of Trees Committee Chair, Mike Dawson (805)680-9600 or firstname.lastname@example.org no later than November 15, 2017. We would love to have your participation so as to make 2017 the best year ever.
