Wallingford, Connecticut, December 19, 2012…….Masonicare’s Twenty-fourth Annual Festival of Trees held at Masonicare Health Center was, as always, an exciting and very successful fundraising effort. A total of $6,531.50 was collected this year from the lucky individuals who were the top bidders on the trees of their choice.
The 57 unique, beautifully decorated tabletop trees, all designed and trimmed by teams of Masonicare employees, volunteers and residents, were on continuous display in the lobby from early December through the afternoon of December 18, when the excitement was at its peak and the highest bidders were announced. All of the money raised will be used throughout the coming year to support a host of activities and programs for residents of the Health Center.
This year, the tree that raised the most money – $400.00 – was “Snow Day,” created and submitted by staff in Masonicare’s Food Services Department. Wallingford resident Donna Terrell was the lucky bidder.
