In an effort to spread holiday cheer and
goodwill this season, Westfield Wheaton has teamed up with 4 local non-profit
organizations for a Festival of Trees. Each organization is responsible
for decorating a tree with the theme to “best represent their organization.” All
4 trees will be on display at the shopping center from Nov. 19 through Dec. 24.
Shoppers will have an opportunity to vote for their favorite trees through Dec.
24. Voting boxes and ballots are
available at the Santa set located at Costco. The non-profit that receives the most votes will receive a $1,500
donation from Westfield.
“We are proud to partner with a special group of organizations whose
impact on the local community does not go unnoticed,” said Sidney Woods, Director
of Marketing, Westfield Wheaton. “There is something so nostalgic about being
in a mall during the holidays and I have no doubt that the Festival of Trees
will be a great addition to the excitement around here.”
Organizations that are participating in the
Westfield Wheaton Festival of Trees include: The Lupus Foundation of America, The
Prevention of Blindness Society, Albert Einstein High School PTSA, and MUM
(Midcounty United Ministries).
Members of the community are
invited to come to Westfield Wheaton to admire the unique decorations in
support of local charity organizations and learn more about each organization’s
mission. Voting is available now through December 24th, so gather
your friends and family to come to Westfield Wheaton and vote for a cause!
