2016 Trilliant Trees 4 Treasures a success

Pat Garritty, Co-Owner of Trilliant Real Estate Group, announced $4,131 was raised at Trilliant’s Trees 4 Treasures

Pat Garritty, Co-Owner of Trilliant Real Estate Group, today announced that $4,131 was raised at their annual “Trilliant’s Trees 4 Treasures” held on the evening of December 7th.

“It amazes me that even in these tough economic times people came out to support this incredible cause.”said Garritty. “This year we sold the most trees ever in freezing cold temperatures. Back when we started this event in 2009 we never envisioned it to be this successful. I love Central Alberta we are so blessed to call this our home.”

Trilliant’s Trees 4 Treasures is a fundraiser for the Central Alberta Women’s Outreach Society “Adopt-A-Family” program. Everyone was invited to Trilliant Real Estate Group’s Sylvan Lake Office to pick up a fresh Christmas tree and in exchange make a donation to the Central Alberta Outreach Society “Adopt-A-Family.” Since 2009 the event has raised over $42,000 and has been able to provide Christmas to 341 children because of your generosity.

“We are proud to partner with Trilliant Real Estate Group” said Darcy Ouellet, Fund Development Officer for the Central Alberta Women’s Outreach Society. “This event continues to grow every year and helps out at a time of year that counts the most.”

This is an annual event every December at Trilliant Real Estate Group.
