“I would like to express a very special thank you to our event sponsors, donors, and volunteers for helping us continue this beloved community tradition,” said D’Lynn Ottmar, Chief Development Officer at Tri-State Hospital Foundation. “I continue to be amazed by our talented community members and businesses. They have demonstrated their support for our community owned and operated hospital through their time, financial aid, and incredible skills.”

One-hundred percent of funds raised during this event benefit Tri-State Memorial Hospital & Medical Campus. Contributions to the Festival of Trees event enable the Tri-State Hospital Foundation to support the hospital in providing new equipment, facilities, community programs, and services that might not otherwise be funded.
