6th Annual Festival of Trees
November 28 - January 3
The Festival is open to the public, who are invited to browse through the holiday display at NK'MIP Resort and enjoy the holiday splendor. There is no admission for this fantastic event and everyone is encouraged to come and vote for their favourite tree; a minimum donation of $2 is requested. For donations over $25 BCCHF will issue tax receipts. The trees will be on display every day through the holiday season with NK'MIP Cellars Winery open til 6pm weekdays and 7pm weekends, and the main lodge at Spirit Ridge open until 10pm. This event will be in support of both BC Children's Hospital Foundation and Spirit of the Game Society.
The Festival of Trees was started in Vancouver 29 years ago to raise funds for BC Children's Hospital Foundation and has grown in several communities in the years since. All monies raised from sponsorship of the trees and votes on the trees will be in support of BC Children's Hospital Foundation.
Monies from the silent auction and the Tree of Hope will support Spirit of the Game Society, a community-based organization dedicated to helping underprivileged youth in Oliver and Osoyoos join organized sports through donations of equipment and assisted funding to sports programs.
In the past 5 years the Festival of Trees at NK'MIP Resort has raised over $60,000 for the two charities.
