This year Bilton couldn't be happier to express how excited we were to be apart of the first annual Innisfail Festival of Trees event, created to bring the community together, celebrating a time to give, share, and be charitable.
Bilton was a proud "Shining Star Sponsor”. We had 3 volunteer employee's who decorated a Bilton tree for the silent tree auction!
Every year, there are families in our community that need a little extra help around the holiday season.
The event runs from November 19 - December 12, 2021 and takes place at the common area of the Innisfail Library & Learning Centre. From Monday to Saturday, you can view the display of awe-inspiring Christmas trees decorated by local businesses, organizations, families, and individuals.
Want to get involved too? Here's how:
Consider sponsoring a tree, knowing that your involvement will help make a better Christmas for those in the community who are in need.
Cast your vote in all three categories – the winners will be recognized on the Innisfail Festival Of Trees website and social media. (You can vote in person starting Saturday, November 20 at noon and voting will end December 11 at 3:00 PM.)
Silent auction, All the trees on display are part of their silent auction and are available for you to take home to enjoy for years to come! (In-person bidding begins Saturday, November 20. The silent auction closes on December 11 at 3:00 PM.)
Wonderful gift baskets will be able to purchase raffle tickets for at the Festival of Trees. (Funds from the raffle are going to support the Santa’s Wish List.)
Santa’s Wish List - An initiative where people can help a local family by buying a present for a child or children in the household.
Make a child’s Christmas merrier and stop by the Festival of Trees to pick up a Santa’s Wish List ornament! Each ornament will have a child’s name, age and wish. (Once you’ve selected an ornament, you can purchase the gift and return it to one of three drop-off locations around town.)
Volunteer they are always looking for volunteers!
