For the past 25 years, the 12 Trees of Christmas has been a favourite Toronto holiday tradition. Designed by the city’s top designers, the trees dazzle hundreds of families at the Gardiner before they are delivered to various charities in the community, spreading the spirit of giving throughout the Greater Toronto Area.
Each tree has been generously sponsored by individuals and companies around the Greater Toronto Area. The trees will be debuted at the annual 12 Trees of Christmas fundraising gala on Thursday November 21. They will then be put on exhibition at the Gardiner for three weeks, where they will be viewed by hundreds of children and families from November 23 to December 15, after which they will be sent to various charities in the community where the spirit of giving is spread throughout the city.
Please visit the links below for more information on this year’s 12 Trees of Christmas fundraising gala (this year called the 12 Trees G Party), the tree designers, and the inaugural auction of Canadian ceramic art.
