"Deck the Deck at Bella Vita"
Bella Vita Ristorante is teaming up with Mission Coffee & Tea Co., Atgeist.com, The Backyard tree farm and local charities to put on a month-long fund-raiser in the spirit of the holiday season.
"Deck the Deck at Bella Vita" begins Nov. 29. Each group will adopt one of the 8-foot trees on Bella Vita's deck, adorning it in a way that represents their group and mission. The trees will be on display between Dec. 1-Jan. 2 where Bella Vita guests will be able to see them and vote for their favorites. Each ballot is $1. Participating charities will receive a cash donation equaling the votes they received. Plus, the top five trees will receive an additional $1,000 courtesy of Bella Vita and proceeds generated by Mission Coffee & Tea sales.
