First Home Mortgage at the Kennedy Krieger Institute’s Festival of Trees

First Home Mortgage was once again a proud silver sponsor of the Kennedy Krieger Institute’s annual Festival of Trees, for our sixth consecutive year! Our donated tree (pictured), was decorated and named “A Little Sparkle in the Season”.

The Festival of Trees was first held in 1990 and has been an annual Baltimore tradition for the past 30 years. It is a magical three-day family event that brings holiday spirit and fun to the community while benefiting the Kennedy Krieger Institute. This internationally recognized institution, located in Baltimore, Maryland, is dedicated to improving the lives of children with developmental disabilities and disorders. The Festival has grown enormously since its inception and has raised over $1.2 million in 2018 alone.

Per their website, as of 2018 festival of trees has:

  • $23 million raised for Kennedy Krieger Institute
  • Welcomed 975,000 guests (This year, they welcomed their millionth guest!)
  • Showed 5,741 decorated trees and 3,679 wreaths
  • Displayed 1,547 gingerbread houses

We are thankful for the opportunity to contribute to such a worthy community cause, and we look forward to doing so again next year!  To find out more about Festival of Trees and Kennedy Krieger Institute or how to donate, please visit: https://festivaloftrees.kennedykrieger.org/
