18th Annual Festival of Trees

It’s time to deck the halls!

Boilard Lumber is once again donating a tree for the 18th Annual Festival of Trees, taking place through Dec. 9 at the MassMutual Center in Springfield. Boilard Lumber joins over 130 sponsors raffling off trees, with donations benefiting the Boys & Girls Clubs of Springfield. Proceeds from trees donated and decorated by businesses, civic and social organizations, schools, hospitals, families and individuals help continue the community’s 127 years of charitable work by providing children in the community with hope, opportunity, and a safe place to learn and grow.

The Boys & Girls Clubs of Springfield provide programs in a safe environment that inspire, educate, guide, enable and support all young people to realize their full potential as productive, responsible, respectful citizens and leaders. The clubs provide a safe place to learn and grow, ongoing relationships with caring, adult professionals, character development experiences, and life-enhancing programs. The clubs provide services for almost 2,300 youth in the community.

We invite you to make the Festival of Trees one of your family’s holiday traditions, and to try your luck at winning one of the donated trees. To sweeten the pot, Boilard Lumber is also giving away a holiday treasure valued at $1,000! The 17th Annual Festival of Trees was a record-breaking year for tree sponsorship, attendance and revenue. With more than 15,000 visitors and 135 trees, the event raised $170,000.

“The holidays are a special time for us at Boilard Lumber and we are excited to showcase our 2018 Festival of Trees donation,” commented Mike Boilard, president of Boilard Lumber. “We are thrilled to have the ability to give back to the community and support a local organization which is shaping the future of our children.”
