TREES OF HOPE FOR THE CHILDREN AT CHEO
On Monday, November 28th, the Fairmont Château Laurier will be hosting its 14th annual “Trees of Hope” event - a corporate tree decorating contest that raises much needed funds for The Children’s Hospital of Eastern Ontario.

A kick off to the festive season, this event brings to light the true spirit of the holidays, combining the beauty and imagination of tree decorating, seasonal music, and the essence of giving.  At the end of the night, the results of the participants’ hard work are put on display throughout the halls of the majestic Fairmont Château Laurier where they will remain for all to enjoy throughout the upcoming holiday season.  Corporate teams will be decorating their trees starting at 4:45 p.m. followed by the Tree Lighting Ceremony and Silent Auction starting at 6:30 p.m.

Money from the corporate entry fees and donations from the People’s Choice Award will be combined with the proceeds from the silent auction to be donated to CHEO.
 

Fairmont Château Laurier welcomes over 8,000 visitors during the Christmas season, all of whom will have the opportunity to cast a vote in the People’s Choice Awards until January 4, 2012. Categories for the tree decorating are: A Heartfelt Christmas, Crystal Elegance and Best Team Spirit.  With 30 companies participating in this year’s celebration, the hotel will sparkle and funds raised are expected to exceed $50,000. 

The Trees of Hope Silent Auction and Lighting Ceremony offers over 100 auction items including a variety of Fairmont Hotels and Resorts’ experiences, spa packages, art, toys and so much more.
