Plans are well underway for the RUHS Foundation's annual
Festival of Trees...for the love of a child! Now in our 27th year, the Festival is one of the Inland Empire's premiere holiday traditions. Proceeds from the event enable the Foundation to purchase desperately needed and often life saving equipment, and support programs for the Medical Center, especially for the units that serve children.
From November 22nd through November 27th, the Riverside Convention Center will be transformed into an exciting holiday extravaganza filled with over 50 beautifully decorated trees and a host of events, activities and attractions that will delight the holiday crowds. This Festival includes a very special evening event - Mistletoe Magic Gala, on November 22nd - a black tie optional gala featuring gourmet dining, entertainment, dancing, silent and live auctions. Mistletoe Magic regularly draws hundreds of prominent business and community leaders and dignitaries.
We are pleased to offer you the opportunity to be an important part of the Festival of Trees by supporting this very worthwhile cause. Our goal for the 2016 Festival is to raise over $500,000 for the specialized equipment that will help save the lives of many of the children and their families who visit our hospital and clinics each year. Riverside University Health System - Medical Center is the only major healthcare facility in Riverside County for children and their families with no health care coverage and little or no income. By becoming involved with the Festival of Trees, you will join a team of business partners, community leaders and caring citizens dedicated to the well being of our children.
