Bennett’s Furniture and Mattresses, one of the longest-operating businesses in the Kawarthas region, is hosting its first-ever designer Christmas tree benefit to raise funds for three local hospitals.
The family-owned business will be hosting the benefit in each of its three stores in Campbellford, Kingston, and Peterborough on three consecutive evenings, with proceeds donated to the Campbellford Memorial Hospital Foundation, the University Hospitals Kingston Foundation, and the Peterborough Regional Health Centre Foundation.
The benefit takes place from 6:30 to 9 p.m. on Wednesday, November 29th at the Campbellford store (13 Front Street South), on Thursday, November 30th at the Kingston store (2376 Princess Street), and on Friday, December 1st at the Peterborough store (105 Park Street South).
Each store will showcase eight professionally designed Christmas trees, each with a specific theme, that are available to be won. The benefit evening at each store will also feature local food and beverages, a silent auction, festive music, professional photos in a Christmas display, and an exclusive one-night-only shopping surprise.
Draws for the winners of the eight trees at each location will be made the night of the in-store benefit, with Bennett’s offering to deliver the trees to the winners’ homes within its regular delivery area (up to 100 kilometres away from each store’s location).
Ticket are $50 for an in-store benefit ticket or, for those unable to attend, $25 for a door prize ticket. Tickets can be purchased at any Bennett’s location. Many local businesses and organizations in each community are sponsoring a tree or sponsoring or supporting the benefit.
