Christmas Tree Elegance 2021



Christmas Tree Elegance has returned! This annual holiday fundraising tradition is going on now through Sunday, December 12. This year, fifteen extravagantly decorated trees and accompanying gifts will be on the mezzanine at the Historic Davenport Hotel or the second floor corridor of River Park Square. Christmas Tree Elegance is a raffle produced by the Spokane Symphony Associates, a non-profit volunteer organization whose mission is to raise funds to support the Spokane Symphony. The $1 raffle tickets offer a chance to win a theme-decorated tree and prizes which include gift certificates, items and cash valued up to $4,999, or a Father Christmas sculpture. In 2019, more than 400,000 of the $1 raffle tickets were sold to visitors who came from across the inland Northwest. In addition to two cash trees valued at more than $4,000, one in each location, there will be a Harry Potter-themed tree called 'Hogwarts Holiday,' one tagged 'Inland NW Staycation' and 11 other exciting trees.

The drawing for winners of all 15 trees and Father Christmas will take place Sunday, December 12. This is a change from previous years when the Davenport trees and Father Christmas were drawn on Saturday evening and the six at River Park Square on Sunday afternoon.
