A Message from the Event Chair

As we enjoy the fruits of a summer so well deserved, another Fantasy Forest – A Benefit for Mason General Hospital & Family of Clinics is just around the corner.  This signature holiday event benefiting our community will raise funds and directly support the health of Mason County by ensuring high quality care is available now and in the future.  Mason General Hospital Foundation through Fantasy Forest will also be able to educate and create awareness of the nationally recognized resources and services available right here in our community. 

Once again we will be partnering with Alderbrook Spa & Resort located on Hood Canal to create our 23rd Fantasy Forest in this stunning environment.  This year we will have an even more intimate setting as the Ballroom is transformed into a magical holiday dreamland.  The activities of Fantasy Forest are a wonderful way to kick off the season of giving while seeing friends, having fun and dressing up to celebrate the occasion.  Each year we strive to create a memorable event that you will look forward to and this year is no different; wonderful food, lively entertainment and amazing auction items all await you at this year’s festivities.  

We hope you will join us in raising funds to support this wonderful community we live, work and play in by participating in the 2017 Fantasy Forest Events. 

With much gratitude,
