Festival of Trees

The Christmas tradition of giving continues as the Moose Jaw Health Foundation’s Festival of Trees gets under way on Saturday, November 22nd at the Heritage Inn. This year’s theme “Romance Me” will inspire the romantic in each of us just in time for the holiday season. The Heritage Inn will be transformed into an amazing culinary and entertainment journey that will bring out the romantic in everyone. Dr. Volker Rininsland will once again be the Master of Ceremonies for this year’s event.

Festival of Trees gets bigger and better every year. Proceeds from Festival will be directed towards the Foundation’s capital equipment campaign to purchase new-state-of-the-art medical equipment including Saskatchewan’s first rural MRI for the new regional hospital.

Chairman of the Moose Jaw Health Foundation James Murdock said, “We are hoping that funds from Festival will help us take one step closer to achieving our capital campaign goal and hopefully inspire others to give throughout the campaign. New digital imaging equipment such the MRI along with a new CT scanner, digital x-ray; expanded operating facilities; all private patient room; and enhanced labour and delivery service will help patients young and old.”

The romance inspired evening includes a spectacular meal, fantastic music and so much more. The highlight is always the Gala’s auction of uniquely decorated trees and Christmas themed displays, spectacular live and silent auction items, and cash auction.

The Festival’s volunteer committee is once again led by the talented Laurie Kosior. Her amazing team has been hard at work for months in preparation of this amazing event. When guests enter the Heritage Inn they will be whisked away for a romantic evening they will never forget.

With the excitement in the community at an all time high with the capital equipment campaign in anticipation of the new hospital - Festival provides many businesses and individuals a unique way to show their support for the new hospital.
