Spectacle of Trees: JFK Museum

Welcome to the 2014 Spectacle of Trees web site.

We have a full roster of 17 organizations taking part in this years' event. To learn about our terrific beneficiaries and enter some online bids, please click on the "Trees" link below. Online bidding will be open on June 1st.

The 2014 Spectacle of Trees event will once again take place at the JFK Hyannis Museum, located on Main Street in Hyannis.  

The very special VIP private viewing party will take place on December 4th. The public is welcome to come and view the trees at the museum from Friday, December 5th through Saturday, December 13th.

The Spectacle of Trees is a remarkable event where local non-profits put together Christmas trees adorned not just with tinsel and ornaments, but a host of fabulous gifts! The Trees feature amazing items such as game systems, sports tickets, gift cards, artwork, and  vacations.

When you arrive at the Spectacle of Trees or "surf" the website, you will be able to donate “Tree Bucks”.  Each tree buck that is put in an organization's box earns that non-profit $10. The more Tree Bucks you donate to a box, or order online, the better your chances of being awarded the tree and the more money that non-profit will earn. If you are one of the lucky people whose name is chosen, you will take home the decorated tree and all of the items that are part of that tree! The worst thing that can happen, the non-profit who built the Tree will receive 100% of your support.

If you are one of the lucky donors chosen to take home one of these remarkable trees, you are responsible for shipping costs if you are unable to pick them up.

Testimonials

"To Whom it may concern: I have been participating in Cape Cod Charitable Funraiser events for the last 16 years in a row. Mostly, the Last Gasp bike ride, but I have also attended most of the awards ceremonies and opening events as well. I find CCCF produces the most well organized charity events I have ever had the pleasure to participate in. I have participated in other bike rides, and the issue I have most (with all of them except CCCF) is that we never know how much of the monies raised actually end up going to the charity. With CCCF, we know UP FRONT that all the money goes to the cause. That's phenomenal! Also, the Last Gasp is run like a fine watch; everything has gone smoothly, with all the sponsers, the events themselves; not easy when you coordinate an entire day's events subject to mother nature. This is a three-legged event that is no small challenge to put together. I do not generally give donations to charities unless I can participate in the event. For the Last Gasp, you are "in" from the beginning, from registration, to fund raising, and of course, the ride itself. The ride is an all-day event; 5 hours for the ride. But the boat ride back and the clam bake are what really make it an entire event. In fact, more time is spent thanking everyone for their participation then the ride itself. Well beyond the monies raised by the event, it's the most fun you can have in a day. When the weather is good, the bike ride is pleasant enough, the boat ride back is very scenic (and festive) and the clam back is an authentic Cape Cod way to wind down a glorious day. Everyone participates, all have fun, and for a great cause. It's a wonderful thing; raising money for people in need right here on the Cape. And it all started with three guys on a last minute whim to ride to P-town at the end of the summer. What a tribute. Well run and a lot of fun! Best, -- Mark Burgess Shorefront Consulting Professional Services On Land or At Sea"
