2nd Annual Spree of Trees

The Sanford Alumni Association’s 2nd Annual Spree of Trees is happening now. This year the trees are virtual, but the prizes are very real!

Sixteen local businesses and organizations have donated great prize packages that you can win by making a donation to Sanford Alumni Association. To donate (and possibly win!) go to https://visufund.com/charities/sanford-alumni. Click on each tree, then click on the “About page” button on the left hand side of the page. (On a mobile device, tap the 3 lines for the menu.) Click on the “Donate” button, or on an ornament and make your donation. You only purchase one ornament, regardless of the amount of your donation. The amount of your donation determines the number of chances you have to win. The Spree of Trees ends December 12, so don’t wait!

You may purchase chances on multiple trees, but you have to donate and pay separately on each tree.

If you’re not online, you can still purchase chances. Call Theresa Salls at 651-4969 to discuss the trees, and find out where to mail your payment.
