Kiwanis Christmas Tree Sales



Event Type(s): Fundraiser / Benefit, Special Events / Holiday
Organization: Kiwanis Club of Charlottesville
Description: For the 85th year, the Kiwanis Club of Charlottesville is selling Christmas trees and hand-decorated wreaths to earn money to support club service projects mainly benefiting children and youth. All proceeds go to four Key Clubs at local high schools, a CKI Club at the University of Virginia, a K-Kids Club at Venable Elementary School, a Central Little League team, and an annual Holiday Party for Persons with Disabilities at WorkSource Enterprises.

Hours of Operation at Seminole Square Shopping Center from November 26 until December 21, or until the trees are gone, are as follows: Saturdays and Sundays from 10 a.m. until 7 p.m. and Mondays through Fridays from 1:00 p.m. until 7 p.m. Prices range from $30 to $105 depending on tree size (3’ to 10’) and all wreaths are $25. Cash or Check payable to Kiwanis Club of Charlottesville; sorry no credit cards.

"Kiwanis is selling fresh cut fraser firs from nearby West Virginia, and fraser fir wreaths assembled and beautifully decorated by local Kiwanians, Key Clubbers, and CKI members," said Cindy Harris, Kiwanis tree sales committee co-chair with Judy Faust. The lot is located once again this year at Seminole Square Shopping Center in front of Big Lots and Marshalls. "Three generations of Charlottesvillians have bought their Christmas trees from Kiwanis. They tell us that our trees and wreaths are consistently the best buy in town for freshness and beauty," said Eric Lamb, current Kiwanis president. Kiwanis has been selling Christmas trees at the Seminole Square location for more than two decades.

All money raised at Kiwanis events is returned to the community in club service projects mainly benefiting children and youth. Last year more than 55 Kiwanians volunteered for over 1,500 service hours and raised more than $18,000 which was distributed to a variety of local agencies. In addition, more than 400 elementary school, high school, and college youth are learning and practicing the highest values of service and leadership essential for the improvement of this community through Kiwanis-sponsored service leadership programs. The Kiwanis Club of Charlottesville has been "serving the children of the world" for 95 years. For more information see: or call Jim Hart, 434-971-2094.
