The Festival of Trees runs from Thursday, November 30, 2017 to Sunday, December 3, 2017. You can find more information here. In addition to the regular Festival hours, there are also many exclusive events which you can attend.
The Festival of Trees is the flagship fundraising and friend-raising event supporting the University Hospital Foundation. The University Hospital Foundation passionately promotes the power of generosity to change and save lives. We inspire people to help advance our hospital as a world leader in specialized and complex care, and to bring innovation to life – supporting emerging ideas and technologies that are advancing excellence in patient care, education and research. Funds raised at the 2017 Festival of Trees will support the purchase of over $1 million in advanced, state-of-the-art monitoring and patient care technology for the Rapid Transfer Unit in the University of Alberta Hospital’s Emergency Department.
Any trees that are not sold at the Gala Evening & Auction, are then available for purchase during the 4 day Festival. You can come down to the Festival and any tree marked with a “Purchase Now” sign is available for purchase.
Financial support of the Festival of Trees comes from our guests’ ticket purchases and donations; the incredible work done by more than 2,000 volunteers; our partners' gifts and in-kind sponsorship; and lastly, our generous cash sponsors.
