UNM physician assistant students take Lollipop Lane to the 2015 Festival of Trees

Physician assistant students at the University of New Mexico got into the holiday spirit with a trip down "Lollipop Lane," creating and donating a Candy Land-themed tree to the Carrie Tingley Hospital Foundation Festival of Trees. 

The seasonal celebration runs from Dec. 4 – 6 at the Albuquerque Convention Center and is free to the public. More than 10,000 people visit the event each year and have the opportunity to purchase and view themed decorated trees and wreaths. Guests also enjoy holiday entertainment by school choirs, bands and local professionals. This year, 65 trees were donated, with themes ranging from Darth Vader to the Twelve Days of Christmas in Origami. Children can get their picture taken with Santa and make holiday crafts. Proceeds from the Festival of Trees support the Carrie Tingley Hospital Foundation’s programs for children with disabilities across New Mexico.
