What is a Tree Designer? The creative master behind a beautifully decorated tree. This may be one person or a whole team!

Who can design a tree? If you are interested, the answer is you! All it takes is a creative vision and the desire to make it happen. We will provide detailed guidelines and will be here to answer questions, brainstorm ideas, and support you in your endeavor.

How can I get involved? This event is made possible through the support of UnderwritersDesigners, and dedicated volunteers who work year-round to organize this community fundraising event.

How much will it cost? We will provide you with an unlit tree at no cost. There is an expense for a pre-lit tree. For the decorations, that’s up to you. Your expenses are tax deductible as allowed by law. If you’d like to be reimbursed, we do offer up to $150-200 for your expenses depending on the tree size.

Where will I design my tree? At Designer Day located at the Empire Event Center from November 12-14! Bring your tree, decorations, bag of tricks, and lots of chocolate. Together (at a distance) with other Tree Designers, you will assemble your creation for display. We will serve snacks and meals, and offer some great door prizes.

I want to learn more! Where should I look? As we count down to the event, we will be posting details in every way possible. Learn more, follow along and engage with us via this page, Facebook, InstagramLinkedIn, and YouTube
