Come join the celebration at Festival of Trees as community members raise funds for the purchase of a 15-passenger van for Boundary Community Hospital while enjoying what has been called by many "The Event of the Year."
Fry Healthcare Foundation sponsors the two day event at the Boundary County Fairgrounds Memorial Hall.
Friday, December 12, 2014 is Family Night. Jolly Ole' Saint Nicklaus and his elves have booked the evening with us. Doors open at 4p.m. Santa will be waiting with eager anticipation to hear all the girls and boys special requests for this Christmas. From opening until closing at 7 p.m. count on complimentary photos by Katie Blumenauer, musical entertainment, crafts and cookies.
Admission Fee is $5.00 at the door or canned goods for the Ministerial Food Baskets.
The Gala is the next evening, Saturday, December 13, 2014. Doors open at 5 p.m. Enter with the beat of The Four Saxes as they perform for an hour and a half. Of course, you won't just be listening to the music; there are trees to look at, silent auction items to bid on, games to play, visiting with friends and neighbors, and checking out the live auction items so you can be ready to bid when the live auction begins.
Dinner begins at 6 p.m. Kootenai River Inn is the caterer; you can expect a scrumptious buffet dinner. Beginning at 6:15, Jeannie Robinson will be at the keyboard with background music. The live auction begins at 7 p.m. That is the time to try to get airline tickets, ski passes, rounds of golf, stays at prestige hotels, gift baskets full of goodies, quilts, Christmas trees, wreaths and more.
We have many outstanding prizes lined up and are open for more contributions. If you are on good terms with someone who can donate a fantastic prize, let us know!
