The Grinch that Stole 2020!

A Festival of Trees event…

In light of pandemic-related gathering restrictions, Newport Hospital and Health Services Foundation announced that Festival of Trees will look different in 2020. Instead of gathering at Sadie Halstead Middle School on December 5th, this year’s two-week event focuses on community partner participation, including one Epic All-Around-Town Raffle Tree.

Newport’s Country Lane will showcase this tree of community gifts and gift cards in a holiday window display for public viewing November 30 – December 15. Foundation administration is hopeful the tree’s value will exceed $5,000. $1 Donation raffle tickets will be sold at various locations from November 30 through December 15th, and the winning raffle ticket will be drawn by the Grinch himself via a live social media broadcast.
