Share the Joy

The theme of the 2021Festival of Trees was “Share the Joy”. The University Hospital Foundation welcomed the entire community to celebrate the holidays with the traditions and cultures that make our community strong and vibrant.

Share the Joy is all about bringing the people and cultures of Edmonton and surrounding areas together to make new friends, laugh and play, and advance care for those who need our help to live healthier lives.

Our Artists

To Share the Joy we engaged our community and had local artists contribute their talents to the overall look and feel of the 2021 Festival of Trees. Join us in celebrating Laura Bachynski and Jordanna Kuefler.

Jordanna Kuefler

Jordanna Kuefler is from Edmonton, and works as Registered Nurse at the University of Alberta Hospital. She has been a nurse for 16 years, and started painting when her daughter was young because her family couldn’t afford to buy artwork. When she heard about the opportunity to get involved with the University Hospital Foundation’s Festival of Trees she jumped at the chance to Share the Joy.
