The Skagit Valley Hospital Foundation Board of Trustees and staff are excited to announce that the gross proceeds from the 2013 Festival of Trees total is $235,000! This dollar amount will more than help us complete our $3450,000 goal to fund the new Cardiac Care Special Observation Unit. We would like to thank the many sponsors, donors, guests and volunteers who helped to make the event a huge success. Each and every one of you makes a difference!
The 2014 Festival of Trees will be held Thanksgiving Weekend, November 28-30, 2014 at the St. Joseph Center in Mount Vernon, WA. Please call 360-814-5747 or email us for sponsorship and tree/wreath design information.
