Christmas Tree Elegance 2019
Celebrating its 52nd Year of Fundraising for Mental Health

 

Welcome to Christmas Tree Elegance, Valle Monte League's premier fundraiser promoting mental health in our community for over fifty years. All past history has truly been preserved through the advancement of technology we've implemented over the years. We share this with technology companies and the growing awareness of what Silicon Valley has been able to add to a new way of connecting, collaborating and bringing us all together.

Remember and Celebrate

There has been a tremendous stigma surrounding mental illness. Most people and family members afflicted did not seek help nor was there the community awareness that exists today. In the 1950's, five women recognized the need to bring to the forefront of community awareness the stigma of mental illnesses, and they banned together, volunteering their time to help and support this cause. Their effort and vision have evolved into a 50+ year legacy of fundraising and promoting awareness for mental health in our community in what has become Valle Monte League’s premier fundraiser, Christmas Tree Elegance.

Valle Monte League volunteers remember and celebrate the tremendous amount of time, effort and commitment our founders made to our community. We are proud to have continued their legacy for more than fifty continuous years through Christmas Tree Elegance. We remember and celebrate each time we solicit donors for support. We remember and celebrate the warm, happy feeling we have when we see the fruits of our labor in the smiles on our guests and witness the disbursement of our fundraising efforts to our charities. We remember and celebrate when we see, hear and feel the gratitude from the agencies and individuals whom we help fund, and when we serve as an example of giving back to the community so generations after us will continue this same legacy. For fifty-one years, our loyal guests have attended and enjoyed the awe of Christmas Tree Elegance, experiencing each fabulous event and allowing us to promote mental health services in the community and assist those in most need. Your ongoing support enables us to assist our four beneficiaries:

Family & Children Services, Centre for Living with Dying, Hearts & Minds Activity Center, and Services for Brain Injury. Throughout the five decades of Christmas Tree Elegance events, over $10,000,000 has been raised. Thank you for your generosity!

All events feature a silent auction, tree drawing, and fashion show by Red Haute Creative.


 

Christmas Tree Elegance Designers


 

One of the focuses of Christmas Tree Elegance is the beautifully decorated Christmas Trees designed by professionals. The gifts that accompany this year's twelve trees are secured by League members from businesses and individuals in the community. Members also obtain cash donations for event sponsors, tree sponsors and for other available donor opportunities. The beauty translates into excitement at the thought of winning a tree along with all of its gifts. All trees are given away, via donation drawings; one at each event and the remaining trees at the Evening Event on Saturday night.
