SPRINGFIELD - In an update to a story WAND brought you last year, Memorial Medical Center officials say they raised more than $300,000 during the 26th Annual Festival of Trees in November 2015.

Memorial officials say more than 35,000 people attended the annual event, raising $332,107 for health-related projects and programs in Springfield.  Memorial Medical Center Foundation Elena Kezelis says the event owes its success to the help of sponsors, designers, committee members, and more than 1,000 volunteers.

The Festival of Trees was created in 1989, and has raised more than $4.2 million for programs in the Springfield area.  For more information on the Memorial Medical Center Foundation, click here.
