The first charity check from the revised Festival of Trees was presented to the Boys & Girls Club of Sierra Vista Thursday afternoon. The club was selected by a committee based on an application process in which the organization was seeking $5,000 for a library in the local facility. Thursday, a $5,000 check was presented by Dr. Dean French, the recently namedCEO of the Sierra Vista Regional Health Center, to the club’s Executive Director, Jarrett Croft, in front of a large Christmas tree in the Mall at Sierra Vista.

The designated charity for this year’s Festival of Trees is the Sierra Vista Boys & Girls Club. The committee received 17 applications, all of which were carefully reviewed, before the club was chosen to be the first charity in a new process for the reorganized Festival of Trees. Damara Lotten, the club’s executive director said the organization’s selection is an honor. “We’ve got a lot of changes going on and whatever money is obtained will help,” she said.
