Chris Pricenor has returned for a fourth year as chair of Festival of Trees, the signature fundraising event for Prisma Health Children’s Hospital—Midlands. The 30th Festival of Trees, led by Prisma Health Midlands Foundation, will return to the South Carolina State Museum Nov. 22-24. As chair, Pricenor will lead a committee of community volunteers and collaborate with the Prisma Health Midlands Foundation team.
Pricenor has volunteered with Prisma Health Midlands Foundation and Children’s Hospital since 1997 when he was a junior at the University of South Carolina. That’s when he helped start the University of South Carolina Dance Marathon (USCDM). Being part of USCDM in college launched a lifetime of support for Prisma Health Children’s Hospital—Midlands.
“USCDM helped me understand the importance of giving back to my community and our Children’s Hospital,” said Pricenor. “A few years ago, it was a natural fit for me to get involved with Festival of Trees, and now I can do so with my own family and children in mind. It’s such a great cause.”
Last year, Pricenor led Festival of Trees and helped raise more than $254,000, including in-kind donations, for children and families treated at Prisma Health Children’s Hospital—Midlands.
“We are so excited for Chris to lead our event committee again this year,” said Jamie Dowtin, Festival of Trees director at Prisma Health Midlands Foundation. “His commitment to this event and to our Children’s Hospital is unrivaled. I can’t wait to be part of the great things our committee accomplishes this year with Chris leading the charge.”
Festival of Trees, a kick-off to the holiday season in the Midlands, features a silent auction of decorated trees, wreaths, menorahs and gifts. To learn more about how to support Prisma Health Children’s Hospital—Midlands through the 30th Festival of Trees, visit FestivalofTreesColumbia.org.
