About Christmas Tree Elegance

Spokane Symphony Associates hosts this annual 13-day event, from the Tuesday following Thanksgiving into December.  This regional event attracts more than 100,000 attendees from around the region.  The event features the raffle of themed and beautifully decorated trees located at the Historic Davenport Hotel and River Park Square.

The celebration, which began in 1983, is the largest of our annual fundraisers. This highly anticipated event is the culmination of our tireless volunteers’ 11 months of planning and efforts. 2023 was our most significant year, with 462,529 raffle tickets sold! We are hopeful that number will continue to grow each year.

Our continued success is largely due to the generous support of the donors to our trees and events.

Christmas Tree Elegance announces record-breaking sales

Spokane – Christmas Tree Elegance 2023 again broke sales records with area residents purchasing 462,529 of the $1 raffle tickets sold for 16 decorated trees and gifts valued up to $4,999. The raffle which has been raising funds for the Spokane Symphony for 41 years broke the previous record of 436,923 set in 2019.


Nine of the trees filled the mezzanine of the Historic Davenport Hotel and seven dominated the second floor east wing of River Park Square creating a holiday tradition for families throughout the Inland Northwest that is produced by Spokane Symphony Associates.


“The response from the community has been tremendous. The Spokane Symphony Associates are excited to celebrate this accomplishment. It is made possible by the financial support of businesses, including our title sponsor Corwin Ford, as well as individuals and hundreds of hours have been donated by volunteers. I thank them all,” said Lori LaFrance, Christmas Tree Elegance 2023 Chair.
