Important announcement from Red Deer Festival of Trees

Published on

Dear Festival Supporter,
Once again, let us take this opportunity to thank you for your past sponsorship support. For the last 26 years, Festival of Trees has provided more than $16 million to Red Deer Regional Hospital Centre thanks in part to your generosity.
While it was a difficult decision, Festival of Trees has been closed to the public due to the current rise of COVID-19 cases in our province however we are still moving forward with a virtual Tree Room, online Silent Auction and our Festival Virtual Fete.
We know that this will come as an enormous disappointment, but we need to lead by example and prioritize the health and safety of our community, guests, sponsors, volunteers, and staff.
We remain committed to enhancing healthcare in Central Alberta. Although Festival of Trees is closed to the public, we are offering a number of ways for our community to participate virtually while supporting our goal of raising funds for electronic fetal monitoring for Red Deer Regional Hospital Centre and other care centres in Central Alberta.
We will showcase the Tree Room and sponsor banners virtually, through Facebook Live and our other social media channels. Follow us on Facebook at www.facebook.com/rdrhfoundation to be notified when we go live.
You will be able to view packages and bid from any computer or mobile device: www.reddeerfestivaloftrees.ca/auction.
We are grateful for your commitment to Festival of Trees, and most importantly our healthcare. We thank everyone who had made plans to attend this year’s Festival of Trees and we look forward to a time where we can gather again.
If you have questions or concerns, please email [email protected].
With sincerest regards,
Red Deer Regional Health Foundation
