More than $2000 in scholarship funding was raised through the inaugural Festival of Trees fundraiser sponsored by PSU’s Operating Staff in conjunction with Plymouth’s Hometown Holiday Celebration. The event at the Plymouth Regional Senior Center featured 46 Christmas trees decorated by PSU departments, local businesses, groups, organizations and families, each with a unique theme. The public then purchased raffle tickets, at $5 per 20, and deposited the tickets in the container in front of the trees they wanted to take a chance on.
At the end of the Festival, winners were drawn. Event co-organizer Tamara Cocchiarella expressed thanks to all that participated in this fun and philanthropic event.
“The success of the first annual festival of trees shows that when the communities of the campus and the town collaborate together, magic can happen!” said Cocchiarella.
Festival of Trees co-organizer Diane Tiffany noted the tree decorations were very impressive.
“The groups entering trees outdid themselves, as all the trees were just spectacular, and the event was well attended,” said Tiffany. “It was a welcome addition to the Plymouth hometown holiday celebration.”
