PANAMA CITY BEACH, Fla. (WJHG/WECP) - Wednesday night, the Seagrass Village sales team held their largest fundraiser of the year to help make Christmas for the senior population of Bay County more merry.

The third annual Trees to Treasure was held at the Panama City Beach Independent Living facility. Healthcare vendors decorated and donated Christmas trees for the event. These Christmas trees were open for public viewing Wednesday night. On Monday, Seagrass workers will wrap all the trees and deliver them to the Bay County Council on Aging. From there, the trees will be donated to senior families in the county that are less fortunate or experiencing hardships.

Sales Director Robin Wakefield said this is one way they work to give back to the Bay County seniors this holiday season.

“This is one way that we can pay that Christmas spirit forward and spread the meaning of Christ and the Christmas holiday. We hope it’s as meaningful to the recipient as it is to us who are giving,” said Wakefield.

People could view all 20 of the donated trees across the three stories of their building. Each person could vote on their favorites. The top three vote-getters were awarded prizes.
