Trees of Hope 2021

Join us on November 1, 2021

Donate To This Event

Fairmont Château Laurier Trees of Hope for CHEO is a magical event that helps kick-start the holiday season, while raising much-needed funds for our very own Children’s Hospital. Companies and organizations participate by decorating Christmas trees which are displayed in the main spaces of the Fairmont Château Laurier hotel throughout the holiday season. We’ve adapted Trees of Hope to make it more accessible to the public by taking both the beautiful TREES and our amazing SILENT AUCTION online, so you can now take part from any location. We’re excited to share with you the ways in which you can participate in this wonderful holiday tradition.


The People’s Choice Award will be live and online this year. There are two ways in which you can participate:

1) If you are an overnight guest or are dining/attending an event at the hotel, you can see the trees in person. We’re also thrilled to be able to welcome back visitors this year.  All guests and visitors must wear a mask at all times while viewing the trees, as they are in the public spaces of the hotel.

2) A virtual tour will be available online starting December 1, 2021

Encourage colleagues, friends and family to vote on their favourite tree, all while donating to CHEO. If you are donating $25 or more, please see the Trees of Hope @ Home section.

Virtual Tour Coming December 1, 2021.
