TREES OF HOPE

WHAT IS TREES OF HOPE?

Fairmont Château Laurier Trees of Hope for CHEO is a magical event that helps kick off the holiday season, while raising much needed funds for our very own Children’s Hospital. The event is divided into three parts:

  1. A huge decorating party in the Ballroom of the hotel where 30 companies take part in creating the unique and beautiful Christmas Trees.
  2. This is followed by a Tree Lighting Ceremony and Silent Auction that same night, attracting over 400 people who are invited to come and view the trees, bid on outstanding auction items and enjoy some Christmas cheer.
  3. Following the event these 30 trees are moved into the public spaces of the Fairmont Château Laurier, where the public is invited to vote on their favourite tree and make a donation to CHEO.

HOW DO I SPONSOR A TREE?

The cost of decorating a tree is $1,225. Each company may have up to 6 team members participate in the decorating party, which include a wonderful festive dinner. Teams are responsible for purchasing and/or making their own decorations. Two themes per year are selected to help guide you in your decorating process. Your team is also responsible for the tear-down of your tree (between January 4 – 7, 2019). If you do not wish to remove the decorations yourself, a fee of $100 will apply and be donated to CHEO.

Should you wish to be put on the waiting list for 2018,
