It's beginning to look a lot like the Holiday Kids' Tree

The 2014 Holiday Kids' Tree lighting ceremony will take place Friday, Dec. 5, at 6 p.m. in the Capitol rotunda. The project, in its 26th year, raises money and provides gifts for rural families in need.
As we prepare to celebrate Thanksgiving, AWB is also preparing for the 26th annual Holiday Kids' Tree Project, which kicks off the December holiday season just a week later.

Fundraising is already underway for this festive tradition, which brings light and joy to the Capitol Building while raising support for needy, deserving families in rural communities in all corners of the state. Last year's celebration attracted hundreds of families for an evening of music, treats and a visit with Santa. Gov. Jay Inslee and a military family from the U.S. Coast Guard anchor the ceremony and the much-anticipated lighting of the tree.

This year's tree-lighting ceremony, with music from Kids in Koncert, will begin at 6 p.m. Friday, Dec. 5, in the Capitol rotunda. As always, the event is free and open to the public. 

Each year the project receives donations which are entirely funded by the private sector -- AWB members as well as generous individuals. The financial donations and new toys are given to rural fire departments who help distribute them to deserving families throughout the state.
