Season Of Trees Holiday Fundraiser
Sources Community Resources Society hosted its annual holiday fundraiser at the Sheraton Vancouver Guildford Hotel on Dec. 10.
Nearly 200 people came to support the fundraiser, which was a combination of a reception and auction. Bodies circled the ballroom to mingle and drink, enjoy live music and appetizers, and place their bids on a selection of uniquely themed Christmas trees.
The fundraiser, called Season of Trees, is in its third year. Sponsors from the Surrey and White Rock communities decorated 17 trees which have been beautifying the hotel lobby for the past two weeks. The trees were live and silent auctioned, emceed by Global BC personality Mark Madryga and Sources CEO David Young.
It was an exhilarating process, with bids starting at $100 and some trees and other sponsored items going for hundreds. In total, the event raised $7,500 and counting for Sources, who will be putting the money towards its early childhood education programs.
