About the FestivalThe Fairview and Area Palliative Care Society wishes to thank all the supporters, donators, purchasers and volunteers who helped support our Festival of Trees. We raised approximately $24,000.00 for the 2022 year.
The Fairview and Area Palliative Care Society continues to fundraise for supplies not covered by Alberta Health Care.
We will be holding our 28th Annual Festival of Trees from November 20th – November 24th, 2023, at the Dunvegan Motor Inn.
We are inviting businesses, organizations and individuals to decorate an artificial Christmas tree, wreath, centre piece or Christmas item in the theme of their choice and donate it to the festival. We request that items be set up on Sunday, November 19th between the hours of noon and 7:00 pm. Items will be on public display Monday, November 20th through to Friday, November 24th from 1pm to 9pm. Successful bidders can pay and pick up their item on Saturday, November 25th, 2023 from 9:00am - noon. There will be a children's draw table this year. Tickets can be purchased for $1.00 and placed in the draw box of their choice. Bidding on donated items will be online this year. (Check the website or face book for more details) Volunteers will be available to help you with this new process. Hours of operation will be from 1:00pm - 9:00 pm Monday through Friday. Bidding will close on Friday @ 9.00 pm. The Society continues to fund Palliative Care training sessions.
