Waltz on over to the Maltz Jupiter Theatre this month to view its stunning lobby, which is filled with 20 gorgeously decorated holiday trees. The trees are part of the Maltz’s inaugural Communi-TREES event, which coincides with the theater’s run of A Christmas Carol (November 28 to December 10).
The 8-foot Frasier firs were provided by Tampa General Hospital and decorated by various local nonprofits in the theme of their mission. Visitors can donate to the orgs by scanning QR codes on ornaments and also vote for their favorite tree. The winning tree will earn a $5,000 prize (provided by donor Roe Green) for the nonprofit.
The trees are also up for grabs! Place a bid, and the winners will be announced December 10, following the final matinee performance of A Christmas Carol. In addition, scrumptious gingerbread houses created by the culinary team at The Breakers are open to silent bidding, and visitors are also welcome to leave gifts under the trees for Toys for Tots.
“The last two words of our mission statement are ‘our community,’” says Maltz director Andrew Kato. “We want to be as inclusive of as many different types of organizations
as possible.” Participating nonprofits include the Boys and Girls Clubs of Martin County,
Furry Friends, Loggerhead Marinelife Center, Els for Autism, and Little Smiles, to name
just a few.
