Budgewoi Tree of Dreams lights up local hopes

December 9, 2020

Locals gathered as the fifth annual Budgewoi Tree of Dreams lit up in support of Iris Foundation on December 5.

The Budgewoi Tree of Dreams founder, Kylie Skinner, began this special tradition after losing an unforgettable friend to suicide. Never wanting Sarah to be forgotten, Kylie created an annual community event to bring local people together.

This event helps Iris Foundation support and educate local children with ‘tools in the shed’ to overcome challenges and support their mental health.

If you would like to donate, there are two easy options:

Purchase a $5 message tag of hope, strength or remembrance in-store at Peachies Hair Salon, 7 Budgewoi Circle, Budgewoi.

Our grateful thanks to everyone involved. It is wonderful to see a community come together in support and we encourage everyone to go see the beautiful tree located near the Coast Hotel, which will be lit up every night throughout December.
