Want to recycle your faux Christmas Tree?
That old artificial Christmas tree can go to a worthy cause. The Carson City Library Foundation is preparing its annual New Year’s Eve fundraising event and needs 16 artificial trees.
Foundation volunteers are ready to pick up donated trees in Carson City, Dayton or Minden/Gardnerville and provide receipts for your tax deductible donation.
“This event raises several thousand dollars for our local library each year,” said Phyllis Patton, library board of trustees chairwoman. “Last year, volunteers took down their Christmas trees early so they could loan them to us for the event. This year, we’re hoping to grow our own inventory of artificial Christmas trees so volunteers can keep their family’s holiday decorations up longer and assist in other areas of the event.”
The donated trees will help create a New York “Tavern on the Green” atmosphere at the Foundation’s New Year’s Eve party, scheduled from 6-9 p.m. Dec. 31 at the State Library and Archives. The event also will feature a gourmet buffet, music, raffle, live and silent auctions and a Times Square-style ball drop.
