Registration Now Open for [email protected] Festival of Trees
Ann’s Place, Danbury’s community-based cancer support for men, women and children, will host this year’s Festival of Trees a little differently due to COVID-19. The 2020 event, [email protected], will consist of three creative contests with cash prizes for winners. Registration and entry are open now, with voting taking place from November 7 through December 5.
Meant to inspire creativity and fun at home, the three challenges include a decorated tree or holiday item, an upcycled sculpture challenge and an “awkward holiday photo” competition. All are welcome to compete in the contests, then celebrate the holidays with a larger community in
November while supporting our cancer patients by voting on your favorite trees, box sculptures and wacky holiday photos. Since they cannot have in-person admissions and raffles this year, your support of Ann’s Place is so important this holiday season.
Festival of Trees is Greater Danbury’s signature holiday event and the largest annual fundraiser for Ann’s Place. The festival was created in 2003 as an invitation to the community to participate in a family-friendly holiday gathering that also underwrites the clinical services and programs that support and guide anyone on a cancer journey, including patients, family and loved ones.
