Trees light up for the kids in West Kelowna

The inaugural Festival of Trees at Mission Hill Family Estate Winery will run to Jan 5

The Festival of Trees light up Friday night at Mission Hill Family Estate Winery in West Kelowna.

The festival, featuring 18 decorated and lit Christmas trees, is a fundraiser for the B.C. Children’s Hospital.

Winery owner Anthony Von Mandl said the event has already surpassed its goal of raising $25,000 for the hospital and he plans to make the festival an annual event moving forward.

The public can view the trees at the winery until Jan. 5 and, for a donation, can vote for their favourite.
