Decorated trees light up the season for Sources

The holiday season has officially kicked off with Season of Trees displays at Fraser Downs and at the Sheraton Guildford.

A decorated tree sponsored by the Cloverdale Learning Centre is part of the Season of Trees display at Fraser Downs Racetrack and Casino.

The holiday season has officially kicked off with Season of Trees displays at Fraser Downs and at the Sheraton Guildford.

For the second year in a row, the annual event features trees sponsored by local businesses at both locations for a two-week period as part of a special initiative for Sources.

At Fraser Downs Racetrack and Casino, the trees went on display Nov. 19, and will continue to light up the spacious foyer to Dec. 5. Guildford will have the display up until Nov. 25, when those trees will make the move to Fraser Downs.

The event culminates with a wine-and-cheese auction at each site, where the trees will be auctioned off to the highest bidder.

Proceeds will benefit programs and services at Sources, which runs the Cloverdale Employment Services Centre and the White Rock Employment Services Centre.

Guilford’s wine and cheese event will take place Nov. 26, followed by the event at Fraser Downs on Dec. 5.

Local businesses interested in sponsoring trees are asked to contact Natasha at nraey@sourcesbc.ca or call 604-836-1346.
