Vote Now for Westfield Brandon 'Festival of Trees' Nonprofit Winner

The "Festival of Trees" at the Westfield Brandon shopping mall features Christmas trees decorated on behalf of charities. Vote on Facebook for your favorite tree and proceeds from a raffle will be given to that charity.


The Westfield Brandon shopping mall officially kicked off its "Festival of Trees" on Sunday, Nov. 18, and now its up to you — the shopper — to cast your vote for favorite decorated tree. In return, the Greater Brandon area charity associated with the winning tree will receive the associated raffle proceeds.

Trees decorated by the charities are located throughout the mall and voting will take place on Westfield Brandon's Facebook page through Christmas Eve, Dec. 24.

According to mall officials, the participating charities include:

  • Boys & Girls Club of Tampa Bay
  • Girl Scout Troop No. 986 of Brandon
  • The Greater Brandon Community Foundation's Foundation Angel Program
  • The Sylvia Thomas Center for Adoptive and Foster Families
  • The Trey Curry Foundation

To benefit the winning charity, Westfield Brandon will be selling raffle tickets for a chance to win a professionally decorated tree, which will be on display at the Santa set — between Dick's Sporting Goods and the Apple store — throughout the holiday shopping season.

Raffle tickets are available through Dec. 16 at the Westfield concierge booth. Cost is $5 a ticket or 5 tickets for $20. Proceeds from the raffle will go to the charity that receives the most votes.

Shoppers also can register to win a $500 shopping spree at specially decorated holiday trees sponsored by White House/Black Market, bebe, Lucky Brand Jeans, Gymboree, Justice and Clarks Kids.
