One of the major annual fundraisers for the St. Joseph's Hospital Foundation (SJHF) is set to return this November.

The 5th annual Festival of Trees will be November 24th-26th at Affinity Place in support of the St. Joseph's Hospital.

"The Festival of Trees brings back all of the favorites of this event, we have four major events over a three day period," explained Becky Cassidy, SJHF Executive Director. 

"On Friday, November 24th is our 'Oh Come All You Seniors' senior tea which includes snacks, tea, viewing of the trees and of course live entertainment. Friday night, we'll be hosting the 'Father-Daughter Gala Dance of the Sugar Plum Fairies.'" 

"Saturday will be our 5th annual fundraising dinner, 'A Celtic Christmas'," adds Cassidy. "This includes auctions, games, lots of fun and a traditional turkey feast as well as this year we are proud to introduce the Celtic party band known as the 'Tilted Kilts', a great blend of Scottish and Irish east coast Folk Rock type music."

The annual 'Santa's Breakfast with the Bruins' caps off the weekend on Sunday morning featuring a pancake breakfast, bouncy castles, face painting, lots of games, Estevan Bruins autographs and photos with Santa.

All of the funds raised will go towards the St. Joseph's Hospital Foundation, helping the organization purchase equipment, services and upgrades within the hospital.
