Our client, the Dove Center in Oakland, MD provides safety, advocacy, and counseling to individuals whose lives have been shattered by domestic violence and/or sexual assault, and strives to expand public awareness of those issues. Their biggest fundraiser of the year is the Festival of Trees.
In July, they made the heartbreaking decision to cancel the Festival of Trees, as we know it, due to COVID-19. However, they are keeping the spirit alive and raising crucial funds for the Dove Center, by offering a virtual event instead. These trees will not actually be auctioned or available for purchase. They are simply entered into a decorating contest.
Individuals can vote for a tree by making a donation to the Dove Center, designated for that tree. We encourage a minimum donation of $5, however any donation amount is welcome.
You can view the trees (and vote) by clicking on any of the pictures. Please support the Dove Center, they do such great work in our community.
P.S.: Our friend Terah Crawford will be going live today at noon to talk about this online fundraiser, tune in!
