Pres­i­dent/CEO, Home Health Care Man­age­ment, Inc. and its non-profit agen­cies: Berks Vis­it­ing Nurse As­so­ci­a­tion (VNA), Vis­it­ing Nurse As­so­ci­a­tion of Pottstown and Vicin­ity (Pottstown VNA) and Ad­van­tage Home Care

For a one-of-a-kind hol­i­day ex­pe­ri­ence, Berks Vis­it­ing Nurse As­so­ci­a­tion (VNA) will spread cheer and pro­mote a healthy com­mu­nity with the se­cond an­nual Berks Fes­ti­val of Trees. This fes­tive event com­bines the cre­ativ­ity of tree dec­o­rat­ing with the hol­i­day spirit of giv­ing to im­prove com­mu­nity well­ness.

The Berks Fes­ti­val of Trees kicked off with a tree light­ing cer­e­mony on Nov. 1 with par­tic­i­pants and com­mu­nity mem­bers gath­ered at the Dou­bleTree By Hil­ton, Read­ing, to light up the trees and of­fi­cially be­gin the vot­ing sea­son. To date, 45 par­tic­i­pat­ing lo­cal busi­nesses and or­ga­ni­za­tions dec­o­rated trees us­ing their own imag­i­na­tive themes, dis­tinc­tive lights and de­light­ful dec­o­ra­tions to show their ded­i­ca­tion to the com­mu­nity and hol­i­day spirit.

For one en­tire month, the fes­tive trees will be on dis­play at the Dou­bleTree lobby with vot­ing boxes so vis­i­tors can choose their fa­vorites. Vot­ing is open to ev­ery­one.

The Berks Fes­ti­val of Trees will cul­mi­nate on Dec. 1 with a 1920s-themed Gala Auc­tion Party. This cel­e­bra­tion will show­case the dec­o­rated trees and gifts from spon­sors and auc­tion them off to mem­bers of the com­mu­nity.

All funds raised dur­ing the Gala Auc­tion Party will help Berks VNA, Pottstown VNA and Ad­van­tage Home Care pro­vide home health and hospice care ser­vices to 7,000 pa­tients in south­east Penn­syl­va­nia, as well as pro­vide pub­lic education pro­grams.
