11/28/2017: "Orcas Annual Festival Of Trees"

Christmas trees return to light up the Moran Mansion at Rosario Resort and Spa during the month of December, decorated by ten local non-profit organizations. Sponsored by the resort, the Festival of Trees is designed to be a fundraiser during this holiday season for participating organizations. This year’s trees will be decorated by:

Friends of Moran State Park
Wolf Hollow Wildlife Rehabilitation Center
Orcas Island Animal Protection Society
Orcas Island Historical Society
The Funhouse Discovery Center
Orcas Montessori School
Orcas Island Education Foundation
A-OK Arts for Orcas Kids
Orcas Island Farm to Cafeteria Program
Rotary Club of San Juan Island

The public will have the opportunity to vote for their favorite tree by purchasing votes ($1 per ticket) throughout the entire month of December. All voter tickets will also be entered into a raffle to win prizes, including:

two round-trip tickets from Orcas Island to Seattle on Kenmore Air with a two-night hotel stay
dinner for two at The Mansion Restaurant
a two-month Rosario spa pass.

Each organization will receive the voting dollars, along with an additional donation from Rosario Resort.

"These organizations not only create a beautiful display in our lobby each year, but they add such value to our community," states General Manager Christopher Peacock. "I hope everyone comes out to see the trees and leaves a thank-you donation to support each of these groups."

The Moran Mansion is open daily from 8 a.m. - 9 p.m. Tickets may be purchased at the Front Desk before touring the tree display.

Rosario’s Holiday Open House will be held Friday, December 8 through Sunday, Dec. 10 (12noon-8pm each day) with complimentary hot apple cider and cookies.
