WHAT IS A FEZtival OF TREES?
Imagine a room filled with a spectacular display of pre lit fully decorated Christmas trees. You can hear the soft holiday music and smell the delicious hot cocoa and cookies as you enter. You are greeted by elves and folk from the early Christmas years. They welcome you to venture into the never-ending path of trees that are overflowing with an array of unwrapped presents. You are surrounded by giggles and the pitter patter of small feet as they scurry around with excitement. In the distance, you can vaguely hear Christmas Carols. Your curiosity leads you beyond the trees onto a lit path in the yard. An unbelievable sight is before you...Santa Claus!
What REALLY happens at a FEZ-TIVAL of trees?
Families will have three days to relish in the holiday spirit with the opportunity to win a fully decorated tree or wreath AND presents. Attendees can purchase raffle tickets, 10 tickets for $5. Raffle tickets are deposited in the container affiliated with the displayed tree or wreath. There is NO limit to the amount of tickets that can be purchased.
ONE ticket will be drawn as the winner for each tree and wreath. The winning ticket will win the tree or wreath and all the gifts associated with it.
Winners need not be present to win. Winners will be drawn after close on Sunday, November 27, 2022.
Santa Claus and Mrs Claus will be available at various times for pictures and sharing of the children's wish lists.

The FEZtival of Trees fundraiser is an excellent opportunity for a business, organization or group to show their philanthropic support while receiving public recognition for their contribution. This style of event has been successfully hosted by other Shrine organizations around the United States for several years. Based on the events Elf Khurafeh Shrine and El Said Court No 28 have sponsored, we expect to have a few thousand people to view the trees.
Businesses will be recognized with signage at the event, on event promotion materials (including social media, websites and emails), in the Arabian Knights Newsletter, and in the media.
We welcome you to donate, design and decorate a themed pre lit artificial Christmas tree or wreath this holiday season! The theme is limited only to your imagination.
In addition, the tree and wreath that receive the most raffle ticket submissions will be designated as the "FEZtival of Trees Champions". They will receive recognition for their honor through social media and both Shrine websites.
A private open is tentatively scheduled for Wednesday, November 23, 2022, 7:00 PM.
We appreciate your consideration to participate and support the Elf Khurafeh Shrine and the El Said Court No 28.

FEZ-TIVAL VS FESTIVAL?
For many families, the holiday festivities may not be the same as others without the support of the local Shriners. The Nobles of Elf Khurafeh Shrine and Ladies of El Said Court No 28 are joining forces to make a greater impact on the community.
The "FEZ" in FEZtival of Trees represents their dedication to so many children who are longing to receive Shrine love and support.
Do you have a true passion for helping children? Don't hesitate, ask a Shriner what their philanthropies are all about.
