NAUGATUCK, CT–Paragon Shows, a leading company in producing family- oriented consumer shows, will embark on a joint venture with the United Way of Naugatuck and Beacon Falls to help grow the family favorite, the United Way of Naugatuck and Beacon Falls Festival of Trees.
Naugatuck Mayor Pete Hess announced the exciting joint venture, saying that “the best way to enhance the benefit to the United Way is to attract more people to the event. Our partnership with Paragon and the increase in floor space by utilizing our indoor event center is the best way to increase the size of the festival. We will also coordinate the event with our downtown tree lighting and arrival of the Real Santa Clause.”
Family Favorite Event Combined with Paragon’s Holiday Sampler Craft Show
The United Way plans to build on the solid foundation of the event, while adding Paragon’s Holiday Sampler Craft Show, in hopes of bringing thousands of residents from Naugatuck and the surrounding area to the festival. United Way of Naugatuck and Beacon Falls will be the benefiting partner of the event with all proceeds from the Festival of Trees going to the United Way.
“We are very excited to partner with Paragon Shows and are looking forward to this year’s Festival of Trees,” said Lisa Shappy, Executive Director of the United Way of Naugatuck and Beacon Falls. Sponsorships and tree donations are currently being solicited; interested donors should contact the United Way at 203-729-1564.
Paragon Shows managing partner Lou-Ann Clement stated, “with the enthusiasm displayed by the United Way of Naugatuck and Beacon Falls, United Way’s Festival of Trees and Paragon’s Holiday Sampler Craft Show is bound to be a festive family holiday event.”
