Red Thread For The Arts looking For sponsors for Christmas Tree Festival

The Red Thread Network for the arts will join Balise Toyota to sponsor a Christmas Tree display at 1399 Riverdale Street in West Springfield. Your company or organization still has time to get involved by donating a decorated tree.

The event begins on Friday, November 24 and runs through Sunday, December 10 when the raffle tickets will be drawn at 2 pm. The hours are Monday-Friday from 10:00-8:00, Saturday from 10:00-5:00, and Sunday 12:00-5:00. There is no admission fee.

The festival will highlight the arts in West Springfield, while raising funds to support children’s art classes and adult art education in town. The trees will be raffled off to attendees who wish to purchase tickets, which cost $10.00 for a sheet of 25 tickets. Raffle tickets are available at Balise Toyota during the festival. Bus trips are welcome with advance notice.

The decorated trees have been donated by local businesses, organizations and individuals. Each day will feature something new as the event aims to engage the entire West Springfield community in the holiday spirit.

The Red Thread Network is the same group that sponsored the Terriers around Town. Christine Costanzi and Jane Barrientos are continuing to work on their mission to bring more art, artists and art events to the town of West Springfield.
