Nothing captures the spirit of Christmas better than singing carols, sipping on hot chocolate and nibbling on some red and green sprinkled cookies while adorning a beautifully decorated tree. The Embassy Suites Atlanta – Galleria is celebrating their third annual Cobb Galleria Festival of Trees event which will showcase more than 30 Christmas trees that have been decorated in a contest for charities.
The third annual Cobb Galleria Festival of Trees is an excellent opportunity for the Atlanta community to make a difference in the lives of others by embodying the meaning of Christmas through fund raising for many worthy local charitable organizations. Admirers will be able to “vote” for their favorite tree or charity by donating money in envelopes designated at each tree. The tree with the highest monetary donation will receive an additional donation from the hotel so every vote matters!
The trees have been up since November 19th and will stay up until January 6th, giving the community plenty of time to thoroughly enjoy the beautiful decorations and make a contribution.
The culmination of the festival will be on Tuesday, December 18th when the donations will be tallied and the winner will be announced.
Last year the event was extremely successful and more than doubled the inaugural year’s donations with a total of $29,618 for all of the participating charities combined and they are looking forward to surpassing that amount this year!
The Embassy Suites Atlanta – Galleria will be serving free hot chocolate in the evening for anyone who wants to come out with family or friends to enjoy the 35 beautiful trees.
