Festival of Trees

6th Annual NK’MIP Resort Festival of Trees - November 28th to January 3rd

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 everyday through the holiday season with NK’MIP Cellars Winery open to 6 pm daily and the main lodge at Spirit Ridge open until 10 pm. This event will be in support of both BC Children’s Hospital Foundation & 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 & Osoyoos join organized sports through donations of equipment and assisted funding to sports programs.

In the past 5 years the Festival at NK’MIP Resort has raised over $60,000 for the two charities. There were over 2200 visitors to the festival and we are certain that with the increased awareness surrounding the event this year that number will also grow substantially. We hope all of the previous sponsors will return and we have spaces for several new sponsors in 2015.
Please review the attached sponsorship package for how to include your company in this noteworthy and exciting event.
