There’s nothing more cheerful than a Christmas tree and no better way to ring in the holidays than by putting up the tree, but Christmas is about so much more than decorations and presents – it’s a time to reflect on our blessings and to assist those who may need a helping hand.
Tree for All is one of three fundraisers held annually by the Foothills Service League to benefit Foothills Gateway and Namaqua Center for Children. Since 1972, Foothills Gateway has been improving the lives of thousands of people in Northern Colorado with cognitive disabilities and their families. They help people conquer challenges and achieve their maximum potential.
For more than 35 years, Namaqua Center has provided care, treatment and healing to Northern Colorado’s most vulnerable children. Many of these children have lived through trauma and may have severe behavior challenges or have diagnosable emotional disturbances. Namaqua offers children-centered, community based programs to help give families the individualized support they need to raise healthy and happy children.
Tree for All will be held on Sunday, December 7, 2014, at 11:00 a.m. at The Ranch First National Bank Building in Loveland, Colorado. This event is an opportunity to celebrate the season and help two great organizations at the same time.
I call that a “win/win.”
For just $40/ticket participants can browse 50+ uniquely decorated Christmas trees that will be raffled off during the event. A beautiful brunch will be served, live entertainment will be provided and there will be door prizes, a cash bar and parking lot shuttle services.
The Christmas trees are decorated by local businesses, organizations and individual donors and let’s just say that these folks get very creative.
Just take a look at this Cat Themed “Christmas Tree” pictured below.
Tickets to Tree for All can be purchased at Cloz to Home (120 W 4th Street, Loveland), Rowe’s Flowers (863 N Cleveland Avenue, Loveland)
or online at FoothillsServiceLeague.org.
This is your opportunity to do something good for your community this holiday season and have fun doing it!
