Festival of Trees’ Family Days will be virtual

The Olympic Medical Center Foundation’s Family Days — presented by The Lodge at Sherwood Village, Fifth Avenue Retirement Center and Sherwood Assisted Living — will be held virtually this year, beginning on Saturday, Nov. 28.

Interested persons can go to the OMC Foundation Facebook page and have the opportunity to see video of all the 47 trees for the festival, which annually features elaborately decorated Christmas trees and wreaths.

People can attend the virtual show free of charge, but everyone will have the chance to donate to the OMC Foundation as part of the Foundation’s effort to raise money for additional lab equipment that will provide another reliable resource of testing for COVID-19 and other illnesses such as influenza.

Coupled with a grant from The First Federal Community Foundation and First Federal, the Biofire system for OMC’s hospital laboratory will increase rapid COVID-19 testing capabilities, foundation executive director Bruce Skinner said.

Tickets for the Festival of Trees Gala Presented are still on sale; they are available at www.omcf.org. The $105 tickets include dinner that will be picked up at The Crabhouse at the Red Lion,221 N. Lincoln St., Port Angeles or Tedesco’s, 210 W. Washington St., Sequim.

Purchasers will have the opportunity to view the virtual show/gala auction and place bids. Ticket holders will also have the opportunity to view the trees in person on a restricted basis.

Now in its 30th year, the annual event is a fundraiser for the Olympic Medical Center Foundation.

For more information, call the foundation office at 360-417-7144.
