"Absolutely Beachy"

Monday, November 21, 2011

As promised, I have uploaded photos of Absolutely Natural's "Absolutely Beachy" tree. We had such a great time decorating our tree and of course wanted to share some photos. It took us several weeks to gather all of the ornaments and decorations for our tree and I would have to say we did well! Jessica and I are incredibly proud of our tree.

Although our tree was on the small side, it had plenty of charm and a lot of HEART! It was everything from sparkle & glam to real starfish & sand dollars. We even found floral decor to imitate seaweed! The final bid for "Absolutely Beachy" was $510 and our tree was one of the most bid-on trees! Very exciting!

The Festival of Trees is one of Junior League of South Brevard, Inc.'s (JLSB) biggest events, and all proceeds are donated to JLSB's partners. JLSB donated $20,000 to Community of Hope during this year’s event. Community of Hope serves homeless families with children by providing transitional housing in an effort to move families from homelessness to self sufficiency. In addition to the $20,000 donation, JLSB has helped build the Hoag Avenue Duplex. This property features 3 bedroom housing so larger families can live comfortably. In addition to money, JLSB also donated their time. They helped with the construction of the entire house, including building the roof, running electrical wires, installing bathroom showers and cleaning up around the work site. In the past three years, JLSB has given $60,000 to the Community of Hope organization. The giving doesn't stop there, throughout 2010 & 2011, JLSB has donated 20 $100 Walmart gift cards to Connected by 25 Brevard. The gift cards support young adults moving out of their foster homes into independent living for the first time. JLSB also hosted a sibling reunion event for foster children at the Brevard Zoo in April. Siblings were reunited from all over the county and enjoyed a family fun-filled day with food, prizes, and of course lots of animals. As you can see, the Festival of Trees is more than fabulous trees, it's about giving back to our community and enjoying the holiday season.

Absolutely Natural was so proud to be a part of this year's Festival of Trees. And, we are thrilled to be a supporter of Brevard County! We cannot thank JLSB enough for having us at this year’s event and for bringing such joy to so many lives in Brevard County!

Kind regards,
