For 37 years now the Saint Alphonsus Festival of Trees has kicked off the holiday season in the Treasure Valley. The holiday season is a time for coming together to celebrate and revel in tradition. It is also a time for thinking of others and giving of ourselves. Saint Alphonsus has been on the frontline of the fight against the COVID-19 pandemic caring for patients and guiding the community through these challenging times. As a leading healthcare organization, we are committed to doing everything in our power to ensure the safety and protect the health of those we serve. For these reasons, the Saint Alphonsus Foundation Board made the tough decision to modify the 2020 Festival of Trees from an in-person event to a virtual one.
The 2020 virtual Festival of Trees will take place over a two week period from November 19 to November 30.
Share in the magic as we virtually display a wonderland of holiday splendor, featuring lavishly decorated Christmas trees, wreaths, and inspirational decor that are available to bid on and purchase online. The Festival of Trees wouldn’t be complete without a visit with Santa Claus. We will be offering personalized holiday videos from Santa. Each one is custom made to ensure your child’s delight!
This year’s proceeds will benefit programs impacted by COVID-19 including healthcare worker relief and resiliency, clinical education for colleagues and community, and new innovations for patient access, such as telehealth.
