Our Festival Friends
Have you ever wondered how the Festival of Trees idea sprouted up?
It all started to grow 27 years ago, when the late Charles V. Keating stepped forward with a vision to create a community of support for Nova Scotians living with mental illness.
Back in 1986, Charles, along with his close friend J.R. Shaw, attended a holiday fundraiser in support of the University Hospital in Edmonton.
Something about the event struck a chord with him. He knew a very important seed had been planted. After that special evening, his vision became clear, and our Festival of Trees was born.
Everyone at the Mental Health Foundation of Nova Scotia is incredibly proud of what
Charles, and his family, achieved. We are enormously grateful to our Festival’s
Founding Father. Thanks to his dedication, Compass Group Canada’s Festival of Trees has flourished into an annual weekend event that has raised millions and millions of dollars since its inception.
It’s easy to see, why our roots run so deep!
