The Jubilee of Trees is calling all designers, community groups, businesses, and individuals to volunteer for its 40th anniversary holiday event to benefit patient care at Intermountain St. George Regional Hospital's by increasing the hospital’s capacity to care for the community with world-class surgical services.
The Jubilee of Trees, which is hosted by the Intermountain Foundation, is a festive holiday showcase of beautifully adorned Christmas trees and wreaths created by local volunteers. It’s brought to life by a dedicated volunteer board whose members enlist the time and talents of families, organizations, and businesses throughout Utah and neighboring states.
“We are grateful for the generations of community members supporting Jubilee of Trees,” said Loriana De Crescenzo, executive director of Intermountain Foundation at St. George Regional Hospital. “We invite them – as well as community members wanting to volunteer for the first time -- to ‘Believe in the Magic of Christmas’ in July and join us in creating the most beautiful event yet.”
Community members are invited to visit https://intermountain.info/2023Jubilee4thOfJuly to volunteer in the following areas:
- Committee Director: This position involves overseeing a specific area of the event, like the Bakery and Sweet Shoppe, the Handcrafter's Guild, or the Designer Trees.
- Tree Designer: This position involves using your creativity to design and decorate a tree for the Jubilee of Trees exhibit hall and auction.

- Fundraising Leader: This position involves leading peer-to-peer fundraisers and disseminating exclusive Jubilee content to spread holiday cheer.
The need for surgical services in the St. George area is rapidly growing. St. George is Utah’s third-fastest-growing city, in a region with the highest percentage of seniors in the state.
Intermountain St. George Regional Hospital is a high-level trauma center, where it’s critical to have high-quality 24-hour trauma services and surgical coverage by general and specialty surgeons, including orthopedic surgery, neurosurgery, anesthesiology, emergency medicine, radiology and critical care.
This year’s Jubilee of Trees will support efforts to increase community access to surgical services in the St. George area, and upgrade technology to allow more precise, less invasive surgical procedures that yield better outcomes and shorter healing times.
“July is an exciting time for us to gather around doing good in our communities, and engage with one another in support of a common cause into the holiday season,” De Crescenzo said.
Jubilee of Trees will be held Sunday, Nov. 19, through Tuesday, Nov. 21, at the Dixie Convention Center in St. George.
