FineMark National Bank & Trust will be this year’s presenting sponsor for Goodwill Industries of Southwest Florida, Inc.’s Festival of Trees. FineMark will be the first presenting sponsor in the festival’s 6-year history
“By sponsoring this wonderful event, FineMark is really giving back to the community it serves and showing support for the crucial programs and services Goodwill provides,” says Madison Mitchell, spokesperson for Goodwill. “We are thrilled to have their support and look forward to growing our partnership.”
Highlights of the Festival, which begins November 23 and continues through November 30, include a Brunch with Santa and an outdoor family festival on Saturday, November 24. The Fort Myers River District Holiday Stroll will take place later that evening. During the stroll, Festival attendees will enjoy a holiday concert by Beatles tribute band “The Nowhere Band”.
The Festival of Trees culminates with the Black Tie affair, Tux & Trees Gala, an evening of festivities, drinks, and fundraising. The event will be held on Saturday, December 1 at 6:30 p.m.
Specific dates and hours for other Festival of Trees activities will be announced later in October.
