GWCA's Annual Festival of Trees Fundraiser
Opening Reception – Saturday, December 7, 2019, 7:00PM – 8:30PM
Trees displayed from December 1 – December 28, 2019
GWCA is investing in the future of the museum with our annual fundraiser, the “Festival of Trees.” The GWCA is seeking individuals, companies, and organizations in sponsoring the display of a decorated Christmas tree with a theme of predetermined listings or decorations of your choosing according with the criteria included sponsorship agreement (see link to form below). Wreaths are also available as listed in the form below. The trees (7 ½’ and 14′) will be on display throughout the Carver Museum from December 1 through December 28, 2019. All sponsorship agreements must be received by Wednesday, November 27, 2019 with the payment included.
Each year we have thousands of visitors to view the trees during the holiday season. Your business or organization’s name will be displayed on signage allowing for free advertisement to showcase and promote your business and you will also be invited to the opening festivities. In addition, your organization will be listed in all of the promotional materials. Plus, this is a tax deductible donation. The festival will achieve two goals: 1) Raising funds for the Carver Arts in Education programming and 2) Promoting the culture and spirit of the holiday season.
Please help us, the George Washington Carver Ambassadors, Inc., celebrate the spirit of the holidays and showcase your business or organization’s creativity.
