Students, teachers, and volunteers from public and private schools throughout Bay City got in the Christmas spirit by decorating over 30 ornate trees in the Graff Bay City showroom. Then as part of the main event, the public was invited to vote for their favorite trees with tickets that could be purchased for $1 each. The best part is that proceeds from every ticket go directly to that school! Not only did each team earn money for their school by encouraging votes, but the Tinsel Tree judges also gave their input on which three trees earned the top spot and an extra $500 for their schools!
In addition, event guests enjoyed festive holiday treats, photos with Santa, and a free photo booth while mingling with neighbors and friends! We can't say thank you enough to everyone who came out to the event and helped the Bay City Tinsel Tree Challenge raise about $3,000 for local schools! It is truly something to see so many people come together to support local education!
