Celebrating Sponsors of The Mental Health Foundation of Nova Scotia's Festival of Trees

Funds raised at Festival of Trees contribute to creating a foundation of mental health programs and services that inspire hope, encourage growth, and transform lives. Festival of Trees has netted nearly 4 million dollars to date. As this two day event welcomes the beginning of the holiday season, it will also celebrate the support of sponsors over the years and moving forward.

 2013 marks Compass Group Canada’s fifteenth year of supporting the Festival of Trees. As the nation’s leading food service and support services company, Compass Group’s presenting sponsorship of the Festival of Trees has become iconic in itself. Just as it delivers superior service in the food industry, Compass Group serves up an ongoing legacy of giving for mental health.

The Compass Group Canada Festival of Trees is centred on the RBC Forest of Trees. This year is RBC’s fifth year of sponsorship. The Forest of Trees is a stunning gallery of Christmas trees decorated by professional designers, individual donors and corporate teams. This gallery of artisan trees and painted ‘tree’ cones is a beautiful visual testament to RBC’s commitment to promoting community growth and encouraging the emergence of local artistic talent.

Shannex, the dedicated presenting sponsor of the Festival of Trees’ Holiday Luncheon, has just turned 25. Shannex believes in quality service and building trusted partnerships. Beyond operations and working with clientele, Shannex delivers its goal of “leading the way to better living” in Nova Scotia through itsongoing support of the Mental Health Foundation of Nova Scotia.

The Mental Health Foundation of Nova Scotia is so grateful to be the recipient of ongoing generosity from these three key sponsors. The 2013 Compass Group Canada Festival of Trees is made possible by the support of these and many other valued partners.
