Halloween trees appear at Discover Museum

This month the Santa Maria Valley Discovery Museum will be home to an “enchanted forest” of fabulously fun trees visitors can enjoy all month long and also have to a chance to win on Oct. 27.

Borrowing the successful idea of Christmas tree raffles done for many years by the local Altrusa clubs, Discovery Museum leaders thought of a similar idea that uses the popular Bippity, Boppity Boo Ball, a Halloween-inspired fundraiser, as the theme for their trees. This forest of fabulous trees should be a unique way to entice visitors to the museum and encourage the purchase of raffle tickets to support museum services.

More than a dozen local businesses have agreed to participate in the enchanted forest and will cover these spooky and fantastical black trees with a dazzling array of products, services, gift cards, and more. Tree sponsors include Santa Maria Energy, Sunny Country, All American Screen Printing, Marian Regional Medical Center, CoastHills Federal Credit Union, Altrusa of the Golden Valley, Linex, Edward Jones, Old Town Orcutt Revitalization Association, Moo La La Boutique, Riverbench Winery, and Salon Studio 23.

Additionally, the museum’s board of directors is personally contributing items to create a fine dining and gourmet cuisine tree.

Other tree themes include health and wellness, gardening, beauty and cosmetics, and family fun, to name a few. Each tree will be covered with at least $250 in products or decorations.

Raffle tickets are on sale now for $1. Visitors purchasing $20 worth of tickets will also receive a pass to visit the Discovery Museum.

Winning tickets will be drawn at the second annual Bippity, Boppity, Boo Ball on Oct. 27 at the Discovery Museum.

For more information, contact the museum at 928-8414.
