Trilliant tree sale raises money for families in need

Christmas this year will be made a little bit brighter for some Central Alberta families, thanks to a $7,780 donation

Christmas this year will be made a little bit brighter for some Central Alberta families, thanks to a $7,780 donation made by the Sylvan Lake-based Trilliant Real Estate Group to the Central Alberta Women’s Outreach Society’s Adopt a Family program.

The money was raised through Trilliant’s Dec. 10 Trees 4 Treasures event, in which Christmas trees were given out in exchange for donations to the Adopt a Family program. Trilliant then matched funds raised.

Pat Garritty, Trilliant’s President and CEO, said the annual event is an indication of the Sylvan Lake community’s strong giving spirit and generosity.

“It is humbling when people open up their hearts and support such a worthy cause at Christmas,” he said in a release. “Every year this event has grown, but I never envisioned it to be this successful.

“We are so proud to be part of a community that always steps up to help.”

Adopt a Family is a Central Alberta Women’s Outreach Society program supported by corporate and individual sponsors from throughout the Central Alberta region.

It aims to provide assistance to families in need year-round, and also has a particular Christmas focus.

Darcy Ouellet, Central Alberta Women’s Outreach Society fund development officer, said the society was proud to partner with Trilliant for the initiative, and said the funds raised help out at an important time of year.
