The Festival of Trees fundraiser project through the BVCH Auxiliary, would not be possible without the wonderful support of the Buena Vista County community.
The following businesses have donated their time, talent and money in decorating the Christmas trees and wreaths to be raffled at 3 p.m. on Sunday, Nov. 19 at the Knights of Columbus Hall in Storm Lake.
Six-foot trees: Hoffman's Flower and Candle Shop, Fareway, Buena Vista County Hospital Gift Shop and Hy-Vee.
Three-foot trees: BV Stationery and Picketts Luggage and Gifts.
Wreaths: The Wreath Company, displayed at Abner Bell's, Sugar Bowl, Lake Avenue Clothing Company, Total Concept and the Straw Horse in Albert City.
The 11 Christmas trees and wreaths to be raffled will be on display at these businesses until the event. Raffle tickets can be purchased at any of these businesses or by contacting any hospital auxiliary member. Place raffle tickets in the box provided at each business. Tickets may also be purchased during the Festival of Trees weekend celebration.
