The Feztival of Trees fundraiser is an excellent opportunity for businesses to show their philanthropic support while receiving public recognition for their contribution. This type of event has been hosted by other Shrine organizations around the United States for several years.
Based on our previous events we anticipate between 5,000 and 8,000 people will view the trees in our first year. Our goal is to have 70 trees sponsored this year.
The deadline for Tree Sponsor applications is: Oct. 18, 2019

About the Feztival of Trees
Business sponsors will be recognized with signage at the event, on the event promotion materials (including social media, website and emails), in the Moolah Shrine Camel Tales newsletter, and in the media. Businesses are also encouraged to promote your involvement through your social media channels, advertising and internal and external emails. You are also welcome to distribute promotional materials and/or conduct sampling or demos for your company within your display area, subject to approval.
You will select a theme for your tree. The theme will be displayed under your company name or logo and on the raffle box.
Your tree theme is limited only to your imagination. Tree theme examples could have trains, dinosaurs, gift cards, or any sports team items. In another Shrine’s Feztival of Trees event, a car dealership includes a used car as a prize every year. The car is displayed prominently in the parking lot with the company’s name on it!
Almost any type of company can be a sponsor: Retailers, Grocery Stores, Car Dealerships, Tire Stores, Sporting Goods Stores, Barber Shops, Lumber Yards or Restaurants.
The public is invited to view the trees during the display period of Saturday Nov. 23rd through Saturday Nov. 30th. (Dates and times are subject to change). Admission is $2.00 per person for ages 13 and above. Children 12 years and under are no charge when accompanied by an adult.

How Tree Winners are Selected:
Attendees can purchase raffle tickets for $1.00 per ticket. Raffle tickets are deposited in the container affiliated with the tree display. There is no limit to the number of raffle tickets that can be purchased. Businesses may purchase raffle tickets for their own tree.
One ticket will be drawn as a winner for each tree. That ticket will win the entire tree and the prizes/gifts associated with that tree.
Winners will be contacted by phone immediately following the raffle ticket drawing. The list of winners will also be posted on the Moolah Shrine website. Trees must be picked up by the winners on Sunday Dec. 1st between 9:00 am and 2 pm. Please call the office if alternate arrangements must be made.
In addition, the business or organization that receives the most raffle ticket submissions will be designated as the “Feztival of Trees” Champion and will be recognized for their honor through social media and on the Moolah Shrine website.
Proceeds are for the benefit of Moolah Shrine Temple and are not tax deductible as a charitable contribution.
