Celebrate the Magic of the Season with Boys & Girls Club's Festival of Trees
November, 2015 - Issue #133
Festival of Trees is a sight to behold - you'll be wowed by the sheer quantity of sparkle and spirit. "This is one of those events that you remember for the rest of your life," says President of the Boys & Girls Club's Foundation and President Elect of the Governing Board Wayne Crawford. "Everyone - from the very young to our seniors - smiles from the moment they walk through the doors. The holiday spirit is contagious at Festival. You just can't help but find it magical."

Also magical: how this SCV-mainstay event helps fund the Boys & Girls Club's vital work. "This event, along with our annual auction, is how we pay for the vast majority of our operating expenses," says Crawford. "Festival of Trees keeps our doors open and ensures that we can hire high-quality staff who are committed to making a difference in the lives of Santa Clarita's children."

"I'm excited to see how the dozens and dozens of 'elves' who set up FESTIVAL each year put this venue to its best use,"
Wayne Crawford
This year the event will be held centrally at the City of Santa Clarita's Sports Complex. "This is a really convenient location," explains Crawford, "We've used it once before with great success and I'm excited to see how the dozens and dozens of 'elves' who set up Festival each year put this venue to its best use. This is going to be a wonderful Festival - I can't wait to see everyone there!"
