More than $2.1 million was raised to support patient care and family support services at the Mary Bridge Children’s 33rd annual Festival of Trees, a record-breaking year for the event.

The annual holiday fundraiser, organized by the Mary Bridge Children’s Foundation in partnership with the Mary Bridge Brigade, was held Dec. 6 and 7.

The event showcased 31 highly decorated holiday trees, as well as numerous mini-trees and wreaths.

On the first evening, charitable dinner event, Tinsel on the Town, brought in more than 600 attendees. The special event featured a live auction, musical performances, and dancing and benefitted Child Life Services, which helps to minimize stress and anxiety for patients and their families during hospital stays.

The following evening, on Dec. 7, was the highly anticipated gala. The black-tie fundraising event boasted a tree auction, three-course dinner, and live entertainment. The theme was the Roaring ’20s, and an additional 600 costumed attendees helped to raise funds for Where The Need Is Greatest, a program that supports services not fully reimbursed by insurance.

A highlight of the night was the surprise performance by the Curtis High School drumline to present the Seahawks “12th Fan” tree. The Seahawks tree included an opportunity to fly with the Seahawks on the team’s private plane to the Dec. 15 game against the Carolina Panthers. It sold at auction for $47,500.

Since its inception, the Festival of Trees has raised more than $36 million for Mary Bridge Children’s.
