Now more than ever, nonprofit organizations and charities need to get the word out about their efforts in the community. Duke Energy’s World of Energy education center at Oconee Nuclear Station, near Seneca, S.C., is proud to support these efforts through its annual Festival of Trees display and voting challenge, which is hosted virtually this year.
The virtual display and voting benefit nonprofits in the Oconee Nuclear Station community.
Online voting will kick off Monday, Nov. 30, and provide the unique opportunity for viewers near and far to learn more about these deserving nonprofit organizations and submit a vote for their favorite tree.
How does it work?
Go online to view and vote for one of the 15 trees that have been decorated by nonprofit organizations, businesses and civic groups. Viewers can only vote once using the online tool (using a valid email). Voting, which is free, begins Monday, Nov. 30 through Friday, Jan. 8, 2021.
The World of Energy Festival of Tree winners (first, second and third place) will be announced Monday, Jan. 11, 2021. The three organizations whose trees garner the most votes will receive $2,500, $1,500 and $1,000, respectively, for their selected nonprofit.
Since launching the Festival of Trees in 2013, the annual fundraiser has become a well-loved local tradition in which Oconee Nuclear Station has donated nearly $20,000 to 15 nonprofit organizations.
