Over the past 25 years the event has brought in more than $2 million dollars for Intermountain and last year alone $236,000 was raised, meaning this year could be bigger than ever.
Intermountain communications director Glenna Wortman-Obie said, “This is our largest fundraiser of the year…and of course we are in the middle of a capital campaign. This year we are really focusing a lot of attention on our brand new community services down on 3240 Dredge Drive and that will be opening in January.”
For first-year tree designer Brook Logan the new community service center is in her mind throughout the decorating process; she noted, “It has been really fun and exciting.”
Last year the single tree auction record was set at $18,500.
