Over $13,000 raised through Trilliant’s Christmas tree project

Trilliant Real Estate Group raised $13,240 for Central Alberta Women’s Outreach “Adopt-A-Family” program

Trilliant Real Estate Group raised $13,240 for Central Alberta Women’s Outreach “Adopt-A-Family” program, last Wednesday through their fifth annual Trees 4 Treasures project.

“It is humbling when people open up their hearts and support such a worthy cause at Christmas,” said president and CEO Pat Garritty. “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.”

Trilliant’s Trees 4 Treasures involved the company inviting people to pick up a fresh Christmas tree in exchange for making a donation to the “Adopt- A-Family” program. Trilliant then matched every dollar raised.

“We are proud to partner with Trilliant Real Estate Group,” said Darcy Ouellet, fund development officer for 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.”
