THE BLESSING TREE
The Blessing Tree is a gift of love…
Every branch holds a wish from the heart,
Each day is a gift to be treasured by all…
As each gift on this tree…plays a part.
It isn’t the cost…that gives value to love
or the size of the gift on this tree…
It’s the blessing I feel as I share with the world…
that my loved one…lives always…in me.
- B. Steele
Continuing an 18 year tradition, Gilda's Club Quad Cities will light a 32' Blessing Tree on River Drive, Davenport. Visible from both sides of the river, each light, bow or ornament on the tree celebrates the life of someone special.
You can be part of the Blessing Tree. Sponsor a light, bow, or ornament in memory of, in celebration of, or in thankfulness for a special person in your life.
Individual lights are just $5 each or you may purchase five lights for $20. Large bows may be purchased for $25 each and gold ornaments for $50 each. A display in the clubhouse will feature the name of the person each light, bow, or ornament represents and a letter of tribute and holiday blessings will be sent if you wish.
This year's celebration will include a private Gilda's Club member gathering from 5:30 - 6:30pm on Friday, December 9, 2016. Doors will open to community members at 6:30pm with the lighting of the tree to follow, along with a wine and beer tasting until 8:00pm.
