Volunteer for a Tree Team in 2020
Participate in CTE
Christmas Tree Elegance is the largest of our annual fundraisers and 2019 marks our 37th year. This highly anticipated event is the culmination of 11 months of planning and efforts by our tireless volunteers. 2018 was our largest year ever having sold 430,500 raffle tickets!
Volunteer and Create a Tree Team
Christmas Tree Elegance Tree Teams need volunteer members with organizational skill, attention to detail, creativity, persuasion, follow through and a willingness to work hard and have fun. Some teams satisfy these needs with 3 members. Some teams are made up of 5-7 people.
Each team is asked to satisfy 4 basic commitments: 1.) Funding in one of four tree categories, 2.) Decorating with WOW factors, 3.) Abiding by procurement procedures and 4.) Participating within established deadlines.
Training for Tree Team Volunteers
Monthly training sessions are held on the 1st Monday evening of each month from March through November. Throughout the year specialty training events may be scheduled and culminate with the walk through of the tree display sites and logistics at the historic Davenport Hotel and River Park Square locations.
