Local charities were the big winners in the Rotary Club of Davidson’s 3rd annual Christmas Tree Village on the Town Green during Christmas in Davidson. Festival goers voting with their donations picked the ShakinIt4Fun tree as their favorite, with donations going to Levine Children’s Hospital. Altogether, the event raised more than $1,400, nearly three times the 2012 total, according to the club.
Other winners were: Tribute to the Troops, sponsored by Deal Machine Shop; and Davidson Green School, sponsored by Fifth Third Bank. The majority of the proceeds will go to Ada Jenkins Center’s Free Medical Clinic renovation, but other local non-profits and schools will benefit as festival-goers vote on their favorite trees.

Bailey Settar and Emma Karant, both of Davidson, will be offering home-baked items for a donation in a fundraiser they’re calling “Declan’s Dream.” All proceeds will go directly to Declan’s care. Read the full story
