    What are Trees of Hope?
    The Trees of Hope is a community event introduced in 2009, which provides Abbotsford businesses the opportunity to share in the spirit of giving during the month of December. This is a fantastic opportunity to ‘brand’ a Christmas tree to showcase your business, as well as support Big Brothers Big Sisters of the Fraser Valley. The decorated trees will be displayed in the common area of Sevenoaks Shopping Centre during the Holiday season at the busiest entrance (nearly 800,000 visitors in December alone).
    The participation fee is $550; register before October 31 and get an Early Bird rate of $500. Registration, payment & logo must be received by November 10th, as space is limited.

    What are the benefits to participating?

    • All proceeds will be given to Big Brothers Big Sisters of the Fraser Valley!

    People’s Choice Award
    From November 20th to December 26th, the community will be invited to view the trees by visiting Sevenoaks Shopping Centre. They will be encouraged to fill out the People’s Choice nomination form, picking their top three favourite trees. The tree that receives the most votes will receive a free ¼ page full color ad courtesy of the Abbotsford News recognizing the company’s support.

    What to Expect

    • An online reservation is required prior to coming to the event.
    • Your reservation time is for your arrival (pony rides happen much later).  Please ensure everyone in your group is on time, or they may not be able to travel together.  
    • You will be inside most of the time, but please dress for the weather as there are some outdoor aspects, such as walking from the parking lot and between buildings.
    • This is a “linear” event, in that you will progress from activity to activity, at your own pace, ending up back where you started.  We ask that people do not try to “go back for a second turn.”
    • Most people will take about 90 minutes to two hours to go to all of the activities.
    • The activities are aimed primarily at children, but adults seem to enjoy them, too, especially when they come with children!
    • This is not a highly-polished event with 10 million lights on display!  It is simple and fun.  Kids find it amazing.  Adults enjoy the peacefulness of the country.
    • There is no Santa at this event, as it is intended to be more traditional and relaxing!

      Timberline Country Christmas 2017

      If your family is looking for a relaxing and fun Christmas experience
      that avoids the crowded malls and long Santa line-ups,
      “Come out to the country”!
      Leave the busy city behind, and enjoy the short trip to a 73 acre horse ranch in Maple Ridge that has been transformed into a Christmas wonderland.  Here you will be enchanted by glorious lights, beautiful trees, interactive scenes, lovely music, and delightful activities that remind us of times when Christmas was a lot simpler . . . and a lot less commercial.  It’s all priced so reasonably that you’ll want to return with your friends!
      Current Status:  Registration is Open!
      Weather Update – Please check back on the day you are booked to attend.

      What to Expect

      • An online reservation is required prior to coming to the event.
      • Your reservation time is for your arrival (pony rides happen much later).  Please ensure everyone in your group is on time, or they may not be able to travel together.  
      • You will be inside most of the time, but please dress for the weather as there are some outdoor aspects, such as walking from the parking lot and between buildings.
      • This is a “linear” event, in that you will progress from activity to activity, at your own pace, ending up back where you started.  We ask that people do not try to “go back for a second turn.”
      • Most people will take about 90 minutes to two hours to go to all of the activities.
      • The activities are aimed primarily at children, but adults seem to enjoy them, too, especially when they come with children!
      • This is not a highly-polished event with 10 million lights on display!  It is simple and fun.  Kids find it amazing.  Adults enjoy the peacefulness of the country.
      • There is no Santa at this event, as it is intended to be more traditional and relaxing!

    ​DOORS 6:00 PM    SHOW 7:00 PM
    We Three Queens is comprised of three of Canada’s finest jazz vocalists. Well-known as solo performing and recording artists, Vancouver’s Jennifer Scott, Karin Plato and Kate Hammett-Vaughan have been singing holiday music together for almost a decade. Their ever-growing repertoire includes classic carols, holiday favorites, carols from around the world, and even some original songs.

    In 2012 they recorded a CD called Happy Holiday. The CD sales go to support the Vancouver Firefighters Burn Charity. The Queens, as their fans call them, were a huge annual hit at the now-defunct Cellar Jazz Club, and this year they are branching out to perform at Blue Frog Studios.

    Since their earliest days as a trio, We Three Queens have been featured annually at the lovely Christmas Eve Jazz Vespers service at Vancouver’s lovely Saint Andrew’s-Wesley Church.

    We Three Queens will be performing with an all-star band consisting of
    Chris Sigerson on piano, Rene Worst on bass and Tom Foster playing drums.

      People’s Choice Award
      From November 20th to December 26th, the community will be invited to view the trees by visiting Sevenoaks Shopping Centre. They will be encouraged to fill out the People’s Choice nomination form, picking their top three favourite trees.

    “Come out to the country”!
    Leave the busy city behind, and enjoy the short trip to a 73 acre horse ranch in Maple Ridge that has been transformed into a Christmas wonderland.  Here you will be enchanted by glorious lights, beautiful trees, interactive scenes, lovely music, and delightful activities that remind us of times when Christmas was a lot simpler . . . and a lot less commercial.  It’s all priced so reasonably that you’ll want to return with your friends!
    Current Status:  Registration is Open!

    What to Expect

    • An online reservation is required prior to coming to the event.
    • Your reservation time is for your arrival (pony rides happen much later).  Please ensure everyone in your group is on time, or they may not be able to travel together.  
    • You will be inside most of the time, but please dress for the weather as there are some outdoor aspects, such as walking from the parking lot and between buildings.
    • This is a “linear” event, in that you will progress from activity to activity, at your own pace, ending up back where you started.  We ask that people do not try to “go back for a second turn.”
    • Most people will take about 90 minutes to two hours to go to all of the activities.
    • The activities are aimed primarily at children, but adults seem to enjoy them, too, especially when they come with children!
    • This is not a highly-polished event with 10 million lights on display!  It is simple and fun.  Kids find it amazing.  Adults enjoy the peacefulness of the country.
    • There is no Santa at this event, as it is intended to be more traditional and relaxing!

      People’s Choice Award
      From November 20th to December 26th, the community will be invited to view the trees by visiting Sevenoaks Shopping Centre. They will be encouraged to fill out the People’s Choice nomination form, picking their top three favourite trees.

      Timberline Country Christmas 2017

      If your family is looking for a relaxing and fun Christmas experience
      that avoids the crowded malls and long Santa line-ups,
      “Come out to the country”!
      Leave the busy city behind, and enjoy the short trip to a 73 acre horse ranch in Maple Ridge that has been transformed into a Christmas wonderland.  Here you will be enchanted by glorious lights, beautiful trees, interactive scenes, lovely music, and delightful activities that remind us of times when Christmas was a lot simpler . . . and a lot less commercial.  It’s all priced so reasonably that you’ll want to return with your friends!
      Current Status:  Registration is Open!
      Weather Update – Please check back on the day you are booked to attend.

      What to Expect

      • An online reservation is required prior to coming to the event.
      • Your reservation time is for your arrival (pony rides happen much later).  Please ensure everyone in your group is on time, or they may not be able to travel together.  
      • You will be inside most of the time, but please dress for the weather as there are some outdoor aspects, such as walking from the parking lot and between buildings.
      • This is a “linear” event, in that you will progress from activity to activity, at your own pace, ending up back where you started.  We ask that people do not try to “go back for a second turn.”
      • Most people will take about 90 minutes to two hours to go to all of the activities.
      • The activities are aimed primarily at children, but adults seem to enjoy them, too, especially when they come with children!
      • This is not a highly-polished event with 10 million lights on display!  It is simple and fun.  Kids find it amazing.  Adults enjoy the peacefulness of the country.
      • There is no Santa at this event, as it is intended to be more traditional and relaxing!

    Timberline Country Christmas 2017

    If your family is looking for a relaxing and fun Christmas experience
    that avoids the crowded malls and long Santa line-ups,
    “Come out to the country”!
    Leave the busy city behind, and enjoy the short trip to a 73 acre horse ranch in Maple Ridge that has been transformed into a Christmas wonderland.  Here you will be enchanted by glorious lights, beautiful trees, interactive scenes, lovely music, and delightful activities that remind us of times when Christmas was a lot simpler . . . and a lot less commercial.  It’s all priced so reasonably that you’ll want to return with your friends!
    Current Status:  Registration is Open!
    Weather Update – Please check back on the day you are booked to attend.

    What to Expect

    • An online reservation is required prior to coming to the event.
    • Your reservation time is for your arrival (pony rides happen much later).  Please ensure everyone in your group is on time, or they may not be able to travel together.  
    • You will be inside most of the time, but please dress for the weather as there are some outdoor aspects, such as walking from the parking lot and between buildings.
    • This is a “linear” event, in that you will progress from activity to activity, at your own pace, ending up back where you started.  We ask that people do not try to “go back for a second turn.”
    • Most people will take about 90 minutes to two hours to go to all of the activities.
    • The activities are aimed primarily at children, but adults seem to enjoy them, too, especially when they come with children!
    • This is not a highly-polished event with 10 million lights on display!  It is simple and fun.  Kids find it amazing.  Adults enjoy the peacefulness of the country.
    • There is no Santa at this event, as it is intended to be more traditional and relaxing!

      Date: November 20, 2017 – December 27, 2017

      Trees Of Hope
      Event Description:

      TREES OF HOPE

      INCREDIBLE MARKETING OPPORTUNITY
      When You Sponsor A Tree!

      What are Trees of Hope?
      The Trees of Hope is a community event introduced in 2009, which provides Abbotsford businesses the opportunity to share in the spirit of giving during the month of December. This is a fantastic opportunity to ‘brand’ a Christmas tree to showcase your business, as well as support Big Brothers Big Sisters of the Fraser Valley. The decorated trees will be displayed in the common area of Sevenoaks Shopping Centre during the Holiday season at the busiest entrance (nearly 800,000 visitors in December alone).
      The participation fee is $550; register before October 31 and get an Early Bird rate of $500. Registration, payment & logo must be received by November 10th, as space is limited.

      What are the benefits to participating?

      • Sponsors are provided with an artificial pre-lit tree for your business to decorate with signage displaying your logo (only 27 trees available). You may bring in your own tree that is within 7 ft high and 3.5 ft wide with lights.
      • A chance to showcase your business to nearly 800,000 customers who visit Sevenoaks Shopping Centre during the month of December.
      • An exclusive invitation to our Family and Friends Decorating Night on Sunday, November 19th featuring live music and refreshments. Don’t have time to decorate? Big Brothers Big Sisters volunteers are more than happy to help out. All you need to do is supply your own decorations.
      • All proceeds will be given to Big Brothers Big Sisters of the Fraser Valley!

      People’s Choice Award
      From November 20th to December 26th, the community will be invited to view the trees by visiting Sevenoaks Shopping Centre. They will be encouraged to fill out the People’s Choice nomination form, picking their top three favourite trees. The tree that receives the most votes will receive a free ¼ page full color ad courtesy of the Abbotsford News recognizing the company’s support. Last year’s winner was: 4Cats Arts Studio Abbotsford.

      09:00-12:00
      2017.12.06

      Timberline Country Christmas 2017

      If your family is looking for a relaxing and fun Christmas experience
      that avoids the crowded malls and long Santa line-ups,
      “Come out to the country”!
      Leave the busy city behind, and enjoy the short trip to a 73 acre horse ranch in Maple Ridge that has been transformed into a Christmas wonderland.  Here you will be enchanted by glorious lights, beautiful trees, interactive scenes, lovely music, and delightful activities that remind us of times when Christmas was a lot simpler . . . and a lot less commercial.  It’s all priced so reasonably that you’ll want to return with your friends!
      Current Status:  Registration is Open!
      Weather Update – Please check back on the day you are booked to attend.

      What to Expect

      • An online reservation is required prior to coming to the event.
      • Your reservation time is for your arrival (pony rides happen much later).  Please ensure everyone in your group is on time, or they may not be able to travel together.  
      • You will be inside most of the time, but please dress for the weather as there are some outdoor aspects, such as walking from the parking lot and between buildings.
      • This is a “linear” event, in that you will progress from activity to activity, at your own pace, ending up back where you started.  We ask that people do not try to “go back for a second turn.”
      • Most people will take about 90 minutes to two hours to go to all of the activities.
      • The activities are aimed primarily at children, but adults seem to enjoy them, too, especially when they come with children!
      • This is not a highly-polished event with 10 million lights on display!  It is simple and fun.  Kids find it amazing.  Adults enjoy the peacefulness of the country.
      • There is no Santa at this event, as it is intended to be more traditional and relaxing!

    What to Expect

    • An online reservation is required prior to coming to the event.
    • Your reservation time is for your arrival (pony rides happen much later).  Please ensure everyone in your group is on time, or they may not be able to travel together.  
    • You will be inside most of the time, but please dress for the weather as there are some outdoor aspects, such as walking from the parking lot and between buildings.
    • This is a “linear” event, in that you will progress from activity to activity, at your own pace, ending up back where you started.  We ask that people do not try to “go back for a second turn.”
    • Most people will take about 90 minutes to two hours to go to all of the activities.
    • The activities are aimed primarily at children, but adults seem to enjoy them, too, especially when they come with children!
    • This is not a highly-polished event with 10 million lights on display!  It is simple and fun.  Kids find it amazing.  Adults enjoy the peacefulness of the country.
    • There is no Santa at this event, as it is intended to be more traditional and relaxing!
