Trees for Dominica

C.E.S. Silent Auction

Please check out our selection of trees for our December 18th and December 19th Tree Auction. Students and staff have decorated trees to assist in this special fundraising effort for Dominica - a small island devastated by Hurricane Maria last fall. All proceeds from the sales of the trees go to the IT for Dominica Foundation in order to help re-establish student learning with technology, infrastructure and resources to Dominica's 75 schools. Silent auction bidding starts on December 6th.

Please check this page for updates to the bids.

The original boxes for the trees are available with the trees so you can store them for next year.

Please inquire with Mrs. Lenz if you would like a charitable donation receipt for your tree purchase. (emma.lenz@pallisersd.ab.ca)

Special Thanks to Michael's for the donation of the 4.5' feet pre-lit trees which inspired this project.
