MAYVILLE - Chautauqua County nonprofits will receive a special gift this year thanks to Chautauqua Suites' Holiday Giving Tree program.
More than 50 area nonprofits will benefit from the program, which raises money via votes cast by visitors who tour the uniquely decorated, 6-foot-tall artificial Christmas trees in Mayville.
According to Stephanie Jackson-Brown, sales and events manager, the event started with the idea of only decorating one tree. But, it snowballed thanks to CASA of Chautauqua County's Kathy Park, who inspired Jackson-Brown by suggesting that she call others to see if they'd like to participate. After receiving much interest in the program, Jackson-Brown decided it would be best to have every tree benefit a different charity.
