The University Hospital Foundation's 2023 Festival of Trees Cause

Presented by Landmark Homes, the 2023 Festival of Trees is raising funds to support not one, but two causes – each with the potential to touch the lives of every patient, family member, healthcare hero and volunteer who enter the University of Alberta Hospital. If you want to support the creation of the state-of-the art Simulation Centre and transformation of the Fourth Floor Atrium, visit to donate to the cause.
