Festival Of Trees Being Planned In Wolf Point, Poplar
Area residents can enjoy holiday cheer while promoting local health care again this year.
The Northeast Montana Health Services Charitable Foundation will hold its annual Festival of Trees on Saturday, Dec. 2, at the Wolf Point Elks Lodge.
Brandi Wilkinson, the foundation’s executive director, encourages individuals or groups to design a Christmas tree, wreath or other holiday decor to donate to the fundraiser.
Set up is scheduled for Tuesday, Nov. 28, from 5 to 7 p.m.
“We’re expecting some great things,” Wilkinson said.
This year, organizers will sell 50/50 fundraiser tickets for some big prize money. Three lucky people will win $3,000, $1,500 or $500. Only 200 tickets will be sold.
“We still have tickets available and are trying to sell out before Christmas so our winners have a nice bit of money for the holidays,” Wilkinson said. “This money will go toward our Putting Patients 1st campaign for 2023. People can purchase tickets by reaching out to board members, myself, or via our QR codes on our Facebook and Instagram pages.” Last year’s event in Wolf Point featured between 25 to 30 items.
“We’re expecting some great things,” Wilkinson noted.
For the first time in several years, a Festival of Trees was also celebrated in Poplar. Wilkinson says a festival this year is tentatively planned for the Dec. 8 weekend.
“It was really nice to get it going again,” Wilkinson said of the Poplar event.
The NEMHS Charitable Foundation is a non-profit organization that assists in raising funds for Northeast Montana Health Services.
