Welcome to new Designers and THANK YOU to our veteran Designers! Last year the Festival raised $152,00 for The Baby Fold; and you, the Designers, were a large part of that figure. I am excited to return as chair fot the Designer Committee after being gone for a couple of years and am looking forward to make this year’s Festival of Trees better than ever.
This year’s theme for Festival Theme is My Christmas Story. We will be returning to the Interstate Center in Bloomington, IL, from November 21-24, 2013. Please remember, the most important reason for the Festival is for the children of The Baby Fold, and your support is greatly appreciated. This year we celebrate our 20th year of Festival of Trees, and will be breaking the $2 million mark!
Set-A-Table and School trees will again be covered by the Designer Committee; if you are interested in participating, please feel fre to contact me for more information.
Festival Designers will receive the following complementary tickets:
7′ Trees, 8 General Admission tickets; 4′ Trees and Tables, 4 General Admission tickets; Wreaths, Mantel Pieces, Centerpieces, Stockings and Other, 2 General Admission tickets.
Ribbons will be awarded in the following categories: Best Christmas Story, Most Elegant Tree, Best School Tree and Best Table. A blue ribbon will be placed with the winning trees and table to go to the buyer; a second ribbon will be presented to the designers at the Designer Reception.
