TWO MEN AND A TRUCK to provide Festival of Trees deliveries

TWO MEN AND A TRUCK has joined forces with the Festival of Trees to provide tree deliveries for the fundraiser. The Festival of Trees and Tux & Trees Gala are the signature events of the Southwest Florida Goodwill Foundation.

Two Men and a Truck (Fort Myers/Naples, Fla.)
PRLog - Oct. 13, 2011 - N FT MYERS, Fla. -- TWO MEN AND A TRUCK is partnering with the Festival of Trees as the event’s 2011 delivery sponsor.  

"One of the core values at TWO MEN AND A TRUCK is to give back to the community,” explains marketing manager MaryKate O’Connell. “We are honored to support an event whose goal is to help those with barriers to employment. There's no better time than the Christmas season to give back!"

The Festival of Trees http://www.tuxandtrees.com is a free week-long showcase of elaborately decorated trees, wreaths, and other holiday fare.  The Festival begins on Nov. 25 and concludes after the River District Holiday Stroll on Dec. 2.  In 2010, nearly 4,500 people visited the holiday display, held annually at the Sidney & Berne Davis Art Center (2301 First Street) in the Fort Myers River District.

After the conclusion of the Festival, the 25 exquisite trees are auctioned on at the Dec. 3 Tux & Trees Gala, a black-tie fundraiser for the Southwest Florida Goodwill Foundation.  TWO MEN AND A TRUCK will then deliver the trees, at no charge, to the auction winners.

“Having a delivery sponsor takes a lot of pressure off of Goodwill’s transportation department,” says Carolyn Johnson, Goodwill’s vice president of communications and Festival of Trees committee chairwoman.  “Plus, knowing that we have professional movers handling the trees will give buyers some additional peace of mind as they bid at our auction.”

TWO MEN AND A TRUCK is the first and largest local moving franchise system in the United States and offers a full range of home and business moving services.

In addition to providing delivery service, TWO MEN AND A TRUCK will also sponsor a “Christmas in Ireland” tree.  Other tree sponsor/decorators for the 2011 Festival of Trees include The Home Depot, Azteca America SWFL, Benzing Technologies, ProFiles, AllPro Home Health, and the Tortoise and the Hair salon.  A small number of tree sponsorships are still available for interested businesses and organizations.

The Festival of Trees and the Tux & Trees Gala are the signature events of the Southwest Florida Goodwill Foundation http://www.goodwillswfl.org.  In just four years, these events have raised more than $215,000 to support Goodwill’s programs and services for people with disabilities and other disadvantages in our community.
