For the last 7 years, Habitat for Humanity Inland Valley has presented ‘Christmas Tree Lane’ at Promenade Temecula.
The lane opened to a choral holiday ceremony, and consists of 15-20 professionally designed holiday trees, each with their own theme.
Shoppers at Promenade Temecula and supporters of Habitat for Humanity are invited to purchase raffle tickets and enter to win the tree of their choice at a public opportunity drawing.
‘Christmas Tree Lane is one of Habitat for Humanity Inland Valley’s largest annual fundraisers, as well as purchase Gabriele Baber’s “Going Home for the Holidays” award winning Habitat for Humanity Inland Valley 2013 commemorative holiday ornament.
This is the second time Gabriele’s artwork has won the annual art contest.
The commemorative ornaments are sold for $5 each and can be purchased at the Habitat for Humanity Inland Valley Restores located at 27479 Enterprise Circle West, Temecula, CA or 570 Central Avenue, Suite I in Lake Elsinore or at Christmas Tree Lane located in the lower level Macy’s Woman’s wing at Promenade Temecula.
Christmas Tree Lane debuted to a Christmas chorus of singers.
In addition to raising funds through ornament sales, Habitat for Humanity Inland Valley hopes to increase awareness and fundraising efforts through their Christmas Tree Lane holiday tree drawing.
Shoppers are invited to purchase $1 drawing tickets for an opportunity to win one of the professionally decorated trees.
The opportunity drawing will take place on Christmas Tree Lane on Sunday, December 15 at 7 p.m. Guests who purchase $25 in drawing tickets will receive a free ornament.
“Our holiday art contest crystallizes the real-life impact behind our programs through this yearly art depiction,” states Tammy Marine, Executive Director. “Gabriele Baber is a well-known and respected artist and a longtime supporter of Habitat. For that reason, her entry is particularly meaningful this year. We hope that our supporters, volunteers, shoppers, advocates, and event attendees will purchase an ornament as a reminder of their connection to Habitat for Humanity and how their efforts are improving living conditions for many in the Inland Valley. The ornaments also make great gifts to friends and staff to remind them of the importance of community service and giving back.“
