The Giving Coast

Friday, November 25, 2022 marks the opening of Boys & Girls Clubs of Manatee County’s 68th Annual Christmas Tree Lot. Since 1954, families from as far away as Orlando have been visiting the Boys & Girls Clubs’ tree lot as part of their family holiday tradition. The tree lot is located between Publix at Westgate Shopping Center at 3913 Manatee Avenue West, and McKelvey Park in Bradenton, and adjacent to Jessie P. Miller Elementary School. On opening weekend, the lot will be open Friday, November 25 and Saturday, November 26 from 9 a.m. to 7 p.m., and Sunday, November 27 from 12 p.m. to 7 p.m. After opening weekend, the lot will be closed Mondays through Wednesdays; open Thursdays and Fridays from 5 p.m. to 9 p.m.; Saturdays from 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. and Sundays from 12 p.m. to 7 p.m. Purchases can be made using credit or debit cards, checks or money orders – no cash sales this year. 

“Last year we sold out by the end of our second weekend and we’re anticipating a similar demand for our Fraser fir trees and wreaths this year, so we’re encouraging everyone to get their trees early,” said Dawn Stanhope, President & CEO of Boys & Girls Clubs of Manatee County.
