Letter from the Chair
Welcome to 2017 Festival of Trees, a year of Believing in Miracles. I am so excited to be the 2017 Event Chair, and look forward to a wonderful year supporting Mary Bridge Children’s Hospital.
As part of the Mary Bridge Children’s Hospital Festival of Trees team for the past six years, I have witnessed what Believing in Miracles can mean. Around every corner, behind every door, there are miracles happening at Mary Bridge. Mary Bridge doctors, nurses, and medical staff perform miracles every day. And generous contributions from donors, event sponsors and volunteers make miracles possible by ensuring that Mary Bridge has the resources to care for all children.
In 2016, Mary Bridge Children's Festival of Trees raised more than $1.7 million. Over the past 30 years, Festival of Trees has raised more than $27 million to support quality care for all children, regardless of the ability to pay. Festival of Trees funding has supported a new Pediatric Intensive Care Unit, construction of a new state-of-the-art emergency department, and a new facility that provides mental health care for children and teens within our community. I can't wait to see what your generosity will help make possible in the future.
Thank you for your continued support and dedication to Mary Bridge Children’s Hospital and I'll see you at the 2017 Festival of Trees!
Michelle Tannozzini, Chair, 2017 Festival of Trees
