Glittering, gleaming, and even full of handmade Christmas ornaments, 12 Christmas trees are on display at the Signal Point Gaming Centre.
The trees are part of the third annual Festival of Trees, and are decorated by 12 local charities.
In exchange for a food or toy donation, people will receive a ballot that they can use to vote for their favourite tree, until Dec. 16.
For each item donated, and there is already a hefty pile at the gaming centre, visitors will receive one ballot.
The top three trees will win a split of the accumulation of Signal Point’s found money from October to December.
All the food and toy donations will be divided between the Boys and Girls Club, the Canadian Mental Health Association, the Cariboo Chilcotin Child Developent Centre and the Women’s Contact Society.
“They are beautiful and they are really quite different,” said Kelly McPhie, Signal Point’s assistant general manager.
While visitors have to be 19 and over, they are invited to come drop off a donation with the security desk at the bottom entrance of the building and take a look around.
“It’s very visual, you can see all of these items on a big table or on the floor stacked up and it’s quite exciting,” said McPhie. “I really think it’s a wonderful cause.”
