The St. Francis Foundation has announced its winning decorators for the 2019 Bon Secours Festival of Trees. The annual event is held each year in hotels throughout downtown Greenville.

Local businesses and schools sponsor and decorate the trees as a way to raise money. A panel of nine judges visits each hotel to carefully review each and every tree to determine the winners in three categories: business, organization and school.

This year’s winners are: 

Business Category:

1st – Mavin Construction
2nd – Resurgent Capital Services
3rd – Amy & Associates, Keller Williams Greenville Upstate

Organization Category:

1st – Thrive Upstate Head & Spinal Cord Injury Division
2nd – Donate Life
3rd – All About Change

School Category:

1st – Bob Jones Academy
2nd – Mountainview Elementary
3rd – Christ Church
Honorable Mention – Friends of the Little White House Montessori School 

While winning businesses and organizations simply earn bragging rights, the winning schools receive a cash prize for their art department.
