After watching White Christmas at the Bing, my family walked to the Davenport Hotel and observed the Christmas trees organized by the Spokane Symphony fundraiser. Different community organizations each sponsor a Christmas tree with a unique theme that includes cash and other prizes. Participants can vote for their favorite trees by purchasing ballots for $1 each. The ballots then function like a raffle. If your ticket is drawn, you win the tree and all the attached prizes.
I always enjoy the elegance of the Davenport.
