Registration Now Open for St. Johns County Festival of Trees at World Golf Village
Sixth-Annual Community Event to be held Dec. 3 through 12
St. Augustine, Fla. (Sept. 21, 2010)—Registration has opened for local companies, organizations, schools, churches, families and friends to participate in the 2010 St. Johns County Festival of Trees at World Golf Village. The holiday event, now in its sixth year, will showcase decorated trees and wreaths throughout the St. Johns County Convention Center, adjacent to the Renaissance Resort at World Golf Village. The event will take place Friday, Dec. 3 through Sunday, Dec. 12 to benefit two local charities.
Teams interested in participating in the Festival of Trees can decorate their choice of a miniature tree (three feet), a small tree (four to six feet), a large tree (seven to 10 feet) and/or a wreath (24-28 inches) based on Festival rules and regulations. Companies may also donate gift certificates for goods and services to be included in the silent auction. Registration forms and additional event information can be found at www.WorldGolfHallofFame.org/todo/fot.php.
All trees and wreaths will be part of a silent auction and available for visitors to purchase for their home or business. Also, when touring the display of decorated trees throughout the convention center, visitors will be encouraged to fill out a ballot indicating the number of votes (in minimum $1 bids) they would like to cast for their favorite trees. Proceeds raised during the event from public votes and the silent auction will go directly to two St. Johns County-based charities, The St. Augustine Record’s Empty Stocking Fund and the United Way of St. Johns County.
The Festival of Trees will begin Friday, Dec. 3 at 6 p.m. and remain open daily from 9 a.m. to 9 p.m. The event will be open from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. on the final day, Sunday, Dec. 12.
