The Jacksonville International Airport Management Council is in full swing with its 2011 Christmas tree-decorating contest that will run throughout December.
Thirty-two decorated trees are on display at Jacksonville International Airport in the interior courtyard, near TSA screening and by the ticketing counters.
Visitors to the airport this holiday season will have the opportunity to vote on their favorite decorated tree through a $1 donation. Donations and votes can be submitted at the ballot box in the JIA courtyard near Sam Snead’s restaurant.
Proceeds from the event will benefit Dreams Come True, the locally based nonprofit organization dedicated to fulfilling dreams of children with life-threatening illnesses.
Since starting the fundraiser in 2003, more than $40,000 has been raised, which has helped in sponsoring 10 dreams.
