Festival of Trees

The 2021 Festival of Trees is being re-envisioned to keep the community safe during the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic. Our Premier Sponsor, CSS Consulting has stepped up to make this event possible. Although we won't be hosting a live event, our shared goal to celebrate the season and the community by offering several opportunities to participate.

Premier Sponsor

HELP SEND OUR TREES TO THEIR HOLIDAY HOMES

Fundraised dollars will benefit patients of Celilo Cancer Center, and help towards the purchase of a new linear accelerator allowing our Celilo team to provide more targeted, life-saving treatment with less damage to healthy tissue. Thank you to our Premier Sponsor, CSS Consulting, and to our local Presenting Sponsor, Columbia State Bank for supporting the 2021 Festival of Trees

  • Beautiful Christmas trees have been donated by community members and businesses.
  • View the decorated trees December 1-7 at, Columbia Gorge Community College, Columbia Gorge Discovery Center, Columbia Gorge Honda, Copper West Real Estate, Fairfield Inn & Suites by Marriott and Sunshine Mill Artisan Plaza & Winary, all located in The Dalles.
  • Rather than an auction, money will be raised by way of a direct donation. We have set a goal to raise $2,500 per tree.
  • Each tree will be on display at its home for the duration of the holiday season, beginning December 8th.
  • Help us decorate the tree at Water's Edge: This tree will be located in the main lobby for the holiday season. Make your donation in honor or memory of a loved one, or just because, starting at $5 to help us decorate the tree. For gifts in honor or memory of a loved one, we'll send an acknowledgment of the gift to the person or family celebrated with your gift.
