Robinson Donovan, P.C., a full-service law firm trusted by generations to represent individual and business clients throughout Massachusetts and New England, participated in the 2017 Festival of Trees at Tower Square. Christmas trees donated and decorated by businesses, schools, hospitals, families and individuals were raffled off at the conclusion of the event with all proceeds benefitting the Boys and Girls Clubs of Springfield.
“The holiday season is about goodwill,“ said Attorney James F. Martin, partner at Robinson Donovan, P.C. “This philanthropic venture allowed our firm the opportunity to get involved in the holiday spirit by donating to a good cause, as well as participating in a local tradition.”
The “Taste of the Seasons” tree, donated by Robinson Donovan, P.C., featured a baking theme, loaded with holiday culinary favorites such as cookbooks, mixing bowls, baking sheets, utensils, cookie mix and cookie cutters. Along with baking essentials, the “Taste of the Seasons” tree came adorned with gift certificates to Arnold’s Meats, Atkins Farm and Bed, Bath and Beyond. Tree raffle tickets were 25 for $10 and were available upon admission to the event.
“The 2016 Festival of Trees had over 15,000 visitors and raised over $160,000,“ said Partner Carla W. Newton. “As residents of Tower Square, it was our pleasure to join the effort and maintain the success of this growing charitable endeavor.”
