Coconut Creek, FL, January 15, 2014 --(PR.com
)-- Forest of Angels® is a community organization that partnered with local businesses to raise money for well-known local charities. Local businesses purchased and decorated Christmas trees and competed for votes to see which business had the best decorated tree. Each business selected a charity whose cause they support. The charities have received a donation on behalf of the business that it partnered with for the event.
For the second year of Forest of Angels®, the decorated trees were on display at the Promenade of Coconut Creek for all to enjoy from December 1 to December 22, 2013. Hundreds of shoppers voted and took part in the event that benefits many good organizations that dedicate themselves to helping people live better lives.
Participating businesses and charities were given the results of the contest on Wednesday January 1, 2014.
The winners were announced and the charities have received their prizes on January 10 2014. The first place winner was Jambco Millwork Design Center and their charity, Abi’s Place, and received $2000.
Second place winner was Discovery Pre School, and their charity, Bright Horizons Children’s Foundation, received $1000.
Third place winner was Fit Bodies Forever and their charity, Yo Fit received $500.
Forest of Angels® will continue with the project and will hold the Forest of Angels® event in 2014. They look forward to even greater participation in 2014.
