Trees of Hope

11/25/14 To 01/04/15

Help us win the People's Choice Award for our Superhero-themed Tree of Hope by going down to the Chatêau Laurier and casting your vote before January 4th! The hotel is magical right now as it is lit up with Trees of Hope from many organizations, all in an effort to raise money for CHEO. Our tree is deftly decorated with ornaments and quotes reflecting our “You have what it takes to be a teen’s superhero” slogan. The ornaments have pictures of CAST dressed up as masked superheroes, while the quotes reflect how they see the superhero in all those who help them.




This year the Children’s Aid Society of Ottawa (CASO) will again be participating in the 17th annual Fairmont Château Laurier Trees of Hope event in support of the children and youths at CHEO. This year’s theme is superheroes, and our slogan is “You have what it takes to become a teen's superhero!”  CASO will be focussing on the super powers of our foster and adoptive parents, and how those powers help the children in need in our community.

The event itself will be held on November 24th, as of 4:45 p.m., beginning with the tree decoration. The tree-lighting ceremony will follow the decorating, with a public viewing and silent auction following at 6:30 p.m.

The public is invited to walk through the Forest of Trees at that time. During this time visitors can put in an early vote for the People’s Choice Award, bid on outstanding silent auction items and enjoy some Christmas cheer.
