Festival of Trees 

 

When you visit the West Coast Christmas Show, you will be welcomed by a wonderful array of decorated Christmas trees, all part of the Festival Of Trees where charitable organizations will decorate trees and compete for a grand prize.

Walk amongst these beautifully decorated trees and stop to watch and listen to a wide range of local musicians performing live Christmas music for your listening pleasure. It will be sure to rekindle your Christmas Spirit for the coming Holidays.

To benefit the local charitable organizations participating in the FESTIVAL OF TREES

For a minimum donation of $5 you may write a card and place it on the Sharing Tree and keep one of the artisan's handmade ornaments from the tree as a keepsake of your contribution

In the year, 2017, 
Sharon Hubbard's SHARING TREES raised $500 which
Sharon donated along with another $500 of her own funds towards the purchase of a vein-finding apparatus for the Nanaimo Regional Hospital.

Sharon underwent cancer treatments at the Nanaimo Hospital this past year, and the treatments were more difficult than necessary as the hospital is not equipped with this machine.   At the time, Sharon determined that she would fund raise to purchase such a machine so that others going through the same treatment, would not have to endure what she did.
