Holiday Gallery of Trees Event on 2nd St

The holiday spirit is alive and well in Long Beach. There are many great charities throughout the city and we wanted to highlight one today that is having a great fundraiser in Belmont Shore.

Operation Jump Start is hosting it's "Holiday Gallery of Trees" event in the short. There are 18, 3-foot tall Christmas trees that you can purchase raffle tickets fr. Each tree has $150 of prizes on them provided by the local merchants. Each day until the 20th of December volunteers will be available in front of the Washington Mutual bank on 2nd St with the winners being announced on the 20th!

This is a great charity to support during this holiday season. Operation Jump Start is a non-profit organization that provides adult mentors and an array of enrichment programs to disadvantaged Long Beach youth starting in the 8th grade and taking them through high school to prepare them for college. They have had such success with the program that their college attendance rate is 97% WOW!

We hope as you support your charities this holiday season that Operation Jump Start and their Holiday Gallery of Trees event can be on your list.
Here is the flyer for their event with the times that they the volunteers will be present to sell the raffle tickets.
