The third annual Tree Jubilee is a special fundraiser that supports WOW’s community programming and administrative fees. This year, it will take place virtually, as well as at Roots Athletic Center at 181 Root Road, where visitors may view a wonderland of more than 25 trees and wreaths, donated by area individuals, businesses and organizations.
“Since we are unable to predict the state of public gatherings in December, we have designed the jubilee so that folks can remain at home and still participate,” Lisa Sunderland Burns, WOW chair of the event said. “However, we invite everyone to see the trees and wreaths in person for those wishing to visit in person.”
“The large lobby outside of the new offices of Reminder Publications provides a great gallery space for the jubilee that has outgrown WOW’s downtown location on Elm Street,” Burns said. “We are happy to introduce this 100,000 square foot complex to many, who may have yet to see this incredible athletic facility, as well as showing off the recently relocated offices of Reminder Publishing and The Westfield News.”
As in past years, some of the trees and wreaths are designed by their crafters to reflect the work of their businesses or organizations with some, offering additional prizes and certificates within their branches. Raffle tickets will give participants the opportunity to take their favorite tree or wreath home, when the winners are drawn at the end of Tree Jubilee on December 6.
“It is important to note one change from last year,” Burns explained. Raffle tickets may only be purchased and submitted online through WOW’s website at westfieldonweekends.com ,”
