Holiday Trees of the Valley
On display for both events will be a “Holiday Trees of the Valley” display where the Covelli Centre will be transformed into a winter wonderland. The display will feature beautifully decorated trees, wreaths and holiday decorations donated by area businesses, groups and individuals which will all be available for purchase. A “Best of Show” people’s choice award will be presented to the decorator of the tree receiving the most votes by guests in attendance at the Jingle Bell Bash.

JoAnn Stock, director of development for Akron Children’s Hospital Mahoning Valley said, “We are thrilled to be working with the Covelli Centre to present these fun, holiday events.” “The Jingle Bell Bash and Breakfast with Santa, along with the “Holiday Trees” and “Desserts of the Valley” displays will provide enjoyment and create lasting memories for all in attendance.”
Proceeds from the events will benefit the children of the community who are helped by the local program and services of Akron Children’s Hospital Mahoning Valley.
“The Covelli Centre is honored to be hosting these events which will hopefully become a staple to the community’s holiday celebration. With two days of events, the Jingle Bell Bash and Breakfast with Santa are sure to have something for adults and children alike," said Eric Ryan, executive director of the Covelli Centre.
"Akron Children’s Hospital Mahoning Valley is a vital part of this community and it is important that we support their cause as they provide such incredible care to their patients.
