Third Annual Festival of Trees benefits Atlanta-area charities.
(PRWEB) December 07, 2012
The Embassy Suites Atlanta Galleria will continue their annual holiday tradition on December 18 that honors the giving spirit of the season. Thirty-seven local non-profit organizations will participate in the hotel’s third annual Festival of Trees, a charitable event sponsored by the hotel and other Atlanta-area businesses.
Each non-profit organization will decorate a Christmas tree – many donated by select partner businesses that will be on display 24/7 in the hotel’s atrium for seven weeks – and Atlanta residents and hotel guests are invited to give donations on behalf of the participating charities’ trees. There is no charge to visit the display, and parking is free. The tree with the largest monetary donations will receive an additional $1,000 gift from the Embassy Suites Atlanta Galleria.
“I can’t think of a more wonderful way to celebrate the holiday season than providing a way to support these organizations at this special time of year,” said Dale Gustafson, Director of Sales and Marketing. “It’s also a great opportunity to invite the public to see the many improvements that have been made to the Embassy Suites Atlanta Galleria.”
On the third Tuesday of December, the hotel’s nightly Manager’s Reception* will transform into a Private Gala Reception for the charitable organizations. Local choirs, musicians, and performing arts organizations will provide entertainment and fine foods and holiday spirits will be served to hotel guests and the members of the participating charities and local businesses. A legendary local luminary will be on hand to award the recipients the donations collected as well as the $1,000 grand prize.
The trees will be on display for donations from November 19 through January 6th. For more information visit: http://www.wcghotels.com/galleria-atlanta-hotel/festival-of-trees
