For the past 27 years, the Festival of Trees has been decorating the lobby of the Four Seasons Hotel Vancouver and turning it into a forest of beautifully decorated trees, all to support the BC Children’s Hospital. The event has grown with so many sponsors, the Festival of Trees had to expand to the main area of Pacific Centre Mall.
Beginning November 20, 2014 until January 4, 2015 the Festival of Trees returns to the Four Seasons Hotel Vancouver (791 W. Georgia St.) and the upper level of Pacific Centre Mall (650 W. Georgia St.) in an effort to raise funds for the BC Children’s Hospital.
The trees are generously sponsored and decorated by individuals and corporations who are committed to supporting child health in BC. The event is open to the public seven days a week, until 11:00pm. There is no admission but there’s a suggested $2.00 minimum donation to vote for your favourite tree.
Last year alone this fun and creative winter event raised over $148,000 in support of the most urgent needs at BC Children’s Hospital. More than 1,000 votes were cast for 41 beautifully decorated trees during the six weeks at the Four Seasons Hotel Vancouver and Pacific Centre Mall.
