We took in the Festival of Trees Opening event – the Celebration of Lights last night. All the sponsors (Redpoint was a Gold sponsor this year) were treated to a private viewing of the event that will take over Red Deer this weekend.
I think the humbling thing I noticed (after eating the yummy dinner) was that for our meagre contribution, we are “GOLD” sponsors… but the hundred of volunteers and board members whose passion for the event has promoted some to volunteer 15 years in a row! When you consider how much it would take to be involved for one year, 15 is unbelievable.
The charity supports the Red Deer Regional Hospital Centre and it certainly is worthy of our support. So take in the festival, buy a raffle ticket and enjoy the desert event friday night! The dessert event is Friday night. So remember: the dessert event is Friday night!
Merry Start-of-the-Christmas Season and remember to thank the Festival ED Tanya if you can find her this weekend!
