Festival of Trees

It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas

By: Kris Hazelton

Members of the Quota Club of Estes Park invite you to the display of beautifully decorated trees for their 2020 Festival of Trees in the lobbies of The Estes Park Resort and The Dunraven Inn. The variety of trees is incredible as always.

Come browse the tables of trees and purchase tickets to enter the drawing to win your favorite tree! The Festival of Trees is usually held in conjunction with the Holiday Home Tour which has been postponed until 2021, due to Covid.

Festival of Trees

Thirty-four wonderful creations decorated by many local businesses, non-profit organizations and individuals are set up for you to see. Stop by and see these beautifully decorated themed trees, many with gift certificates and goodies attached.

Chances for winning these trees will be sold at the hotel front desk. Ticket prices are:

1 ticket for $1.00

6 tickets for $5.00

13 tickets for $10.00.

Purchase your tickets and put your full name and phone number on the back of the ticket for your chance to win. Drop your tickets in the box next to your favorite tree on display for a chance to win the tree! The drawing for winners of the trees will be held on December 18 and the event will be in a Zoom Virtual format from the lobby of the Estes Park Resort at 3:00 p.m. Please note, if you win a tree, you will be responsible for picking it up. If you are not present, you will receive a phone call to arrange for pick-up of your tree.

Festival of Trees

Quota Club would like the thank The Estes Park Resort and The Dunraven Inn for decorating their own trees as well as displaying all of the trees in their lobbies and helping with this fund-raising project. Why not plan an outing to go view these special trees and afterwards, have a meal or a beverage at The Dunraven Inn, or make a weekend of it and book a stay at the Estes Park Resort!

Proceeds from the Festival of Trees go to the many community projects of Quota, most recently donations to the Glen Haven Area Volunteer Fire Department and the Drake Fire Department to our hero firefighters. It will also support the Loan Closet, Ambulance Fund, student grants, service to seniors, service to youth, help for disadvantaged women and children and much more! In this time of Covid and the difficulty of fund-raising, come support Quota and see these wonderful trees which are sure to get you into the holiday spirit.
