The Utah Valley Chamber of Commerce Decorates a Tree for Festival of Trees
PROVO, UT—The Utah Valley Chamber of Commerce will be supporting the Primary Children’s Festival of Trees this year by decorating a Christmas tree for auction. Approximately 90,000 people attend the Festival of Trees each year. School groups, families, church groups and countless others have made the Festival of Trees a holiday tradition. The Chamber is encouraging their members and people in the valley to donate gifts, whether they are “Gifts of Love” by attending the event, or a real gift that can be given with the tree, they encourage all to attend. Gifts can be brought to the Chamber offices at 51 S. University Ave. Suite 215, Provo, UT. 84601, anytime before November 27th.

About the Festival of Trees:
The Festival of Trees is magic! But not the kind of magic made by sleight of hand. Rather, it is the result of many hands! Within a 24-hour period, an empty exhibit hall transforms into a winter wonderland of over 800 uniquely decorated Christmas trees, wreaths, playhouses, centerpieces, and gingerbread houses. Shops are filled with dolls, handmade crafts and quilts, freshly baked cookies and candies, hot scones, and cinnamon rolls.
While this holiday magic lasts only four days, it continues throughout the year in the hearts of those who volunteer and support the Festival of Trees. But most of all, the magic continues in the lives of children. Every penny raised from each tree, cookie, and quilt is used to give a “Gift of Love” to children at Primary Children’s Medical Center.
