Rotary Club of Burnaby Celebrates Festival of Lights!

Brentwood Town Centre played host to an impressive Christmas tree display this past holiday season. Organized by The Rotary Club of Burnaby Deer Lake, this event, dubbed the Festival of Lights, comprised of 25 decorated trees displayed on the second level of the mall until December 29th. The public were invited to vote for their favourite decorated Christmas tree to help in their efforts to provide local needy children with winter boots. Each tree was sponsored by a local company or Rotary club, with sponsors decorating themselves, or recruiting local schools to do so.

The Club hoped to raise $10,000 for its programs, including its Boots For Kids campaign that provides warm winter boots for children in need at local inner city schools.

We were honoured to be a part of this fun and meaningful event. Our marketing team, spearheaded by SVP Manuela Mirecki, designed a Sugar Plum Fairy tree decked with pink tulle, hand-made oversized bon bons, fairy wings, silver doves and a sparkling tiara on top!

We had so much fun participating in this event. And we were excited to learn that our tree had received the

most votes!
