Letter from the Chair
Welcome to the 2020 Festival of Trees,
Lauren and I are thrilled to be joining you as this year’s Event Co-Chairs. Our Festival experience has been one for the books! For over 20 years we’ve been Tree Designers and from 2005 to 2010 we also managed the Mary Bridge Brigade Gift Shop.
As many of you are aware, due to the COVID-19 pandemic, MultiCare has decided to cancel all in-person fundraising events for the remainder of the year to ensure the safety of our community. We invite you to join us for our first-ever virtual Festival of Trees. We have updated our theme for this year to “Home for the Holidays.” Your effort as volunteers is essential in raising funds for Mary Bridge Children’s, ensuring that that they continue to provide high-quality, compassionate care for children throughout our communities.
We’ve had the pleasure and honor to be following in the footsteps of many chairs who have held this role and who, with the dedication of community volunteers, have raised over $36.9 million for Mary Bridge Children’s. This has helped to provide countless families with care and support for the past 34 years.
Thank you to those who are new to Festival and to those who’ve supported Mary Bridge Children’s for years. Please know you have our support and gratitude for opening your hearts and dedicating your time.
