UPDATE: WE HAVE SOLD OUT!
This has been an extraordinary year. Businesses and organizations have faced many challenges. Community celebrations have been cancelled and we are all doing things differently.
For the past 10 years, the Lynn Valley Community Association has worked to bring people, families, businesses and schools, places of worship, and organizations together at the LVCA Parade of Trees which is now a firmly established family favourite tradition.
This year’s circumstances made us have to rethink and revise. To be able to still have our wonderful display of Christmas trees, the tree lighting and accompanying festivities have been out on hold. We’ve worked hard to create a safe and physically distanced version to meet Vancouver Coastal Health guidelines and recommendations and invite you to continue your support by sponsoring a tree.
The tree sponsorship this year is just $150 – a one-time reduction of $100 over last year for these extraordinary times. How are we able to do this?
Historically, the event is a fundraiser for LVCA, with net proceeds supporting the work of LVCA throughout the year. With park projects and community initiatives cancelled due to COVID and sadly, there can be no opening ceremony festivities this year, the proceeds from last year are ready and waiting for next year. And lastly, in prior years we have donated $50 from each sponsorship to a local beneficiary. This year the beneficiary is simply “Community Spirit”. Priceless.
Want to make a bigger contribution but not sure how? Upgrade your sponsorship to “You + One”. This sponsorship includes two trees for $300 – one for yourself and one to be ‘gifted’ to a local non-profit to decorate. Your generosity will be recognized on site and on all Parade of Trees marketing material.
Decorating will look a little different this year as we need to ensure physical distancing for all our sponsors and volunteers. Details are still being worked out, but expect to decorate your tree sometime during the first week of December.
Thank you! We truly appreciate your support and community spirit! If you require more information, email firstname.lastname@example.org
