Here at Big Brothers Big Sisters of the Fraser Valley, we are excited to announce that we will be getting into the Christmas spirit early this year!

Sevenoaks Shopping Center, located in Abbotsford B.C., has chosen to support Big Brothers Big Sisters of the Fraser Valley through their annual Trees of Hope fundraiser. Through the Trees of Hope, local businesses can sponsor and decorate a tree that will be put on display inside the shopping center for the majority of the months of November and December, where nearly 800,000 visitors will see it. All proceeds of tree sponsorships will go directly to Big Brothers Big Sisters of the Fraser Valley, supporting mentoring programs for at-risk children and youth in the Fraser Valley!

These trees present a unique opportunity to showcase local businesses and can be decorated in a way that is distinctive to each of the different sponsors. In addition to the exposure these trees will gain from simply being in the mall, they will also receive coverage from Abbotsford News, Star 98.3, Country 107.1 and Kiss Radio.

Each tree will automatically be entered into the People’s Choice Award competition where each businesses’ decorating skills will be put to the test. Community members will be encouraged to walk through and enjoy the trees and then vote on their top three tree choices. The tree that receives the most votes will be awarded with a quarter page full colour advertisement recognizing the company’s support.

Spots are limited so get in soon and claim a tree! By signing up early, you will not only be securing your spot, but you will also be taking advantage of the early bird discount that expires after October 31st. Sevenoaks Shopping Center provides the trees and the lighting, but it will be up to the sponsors to provide the decorations. There will be an exclusive decorating party with live music and refreshments for all participants to come and partake in, however, if there is a business that would rather leave the decorating to someone else, volunteers can decorate the tree on their behalf. This is a great chance to gain some exposure for your business while supporting your community at the same time!
