ALYS BEACH WALKING TOUR
HELPING HANDS: TREE DECORATING CONTEST
Brighten up the holidays for local children who will be hospitalized this December by participating in our 1st Annual Helping Hands Holiday Event!
Place your order via email by October 22nd to Michelle Burch or Jill Arno to request your tree(s) to decorate for this event. Please provide your Name and/or Company Name, business address, and phone number along with how many trees you would like to decorate.
Our team of volunteers will deliver the undecorated tree(s) to your business in November. You (and/or your team) will have artistic freedom to creatively decorate your tree(s) for children ranging in age from birth to 20 years old. Please ensure that the trees are appropriate for all ages to view. Include a Holiday card with your Name/Company/Team Name to accommodate your tree.
Then join us on December 8th for a cocktail at Perfect Plain Brewing Company, located at 50 E Garden Street, to celebrate the beautifully decorated trees! Check out the different categories listed in the flyer that we have for a little extra fun contest.
Lastly, our team will deliver the trees to Studer Children’s Hospital where the children will be able to come down and pick out a tree of their choice and enjoy a small holiday party. The children will be able to take their tree and Holiday Card home with them upon leaving the hospital.
Thank you for helping make a difference in our community with this event!
