Third Annual Forest of Wishes
Downtown Victoria has always been a feast for the eyes to share with friends and loved ones at Christmas. This year, be sure to add to your festive stroll by stopping at the Chateau Victoria’s “Forest of Wishes”. While here, add your own special wish to the forest. Simply make a donation at our front desk and receive a “Wish Decoration.” All proceeds benefit the Times Colonist Christmas Fund.
On November 30, 2019 the Chateau Victoria’s “Forest of Wishes” Display will be ready for the public to compliment the 38th Annual Island Farms Santa’s light Parade so head down early and avoid the crowds. This is your chance to be among the first to hang your special wish on our trees and be a part of the spirit of giving.
The “Forest of Wishes” will remain open for all until January 2, 2020.
We want to encourage all employees, hotel guests and restaurant & lounge patrons to make a donation and make a wish. Please join us in making this event a success by encouraging friends, family, and guests to participate. The Chateau Victoria we is excited to be giving back to the community.

We have two places to donate: At the front desk, or may be added to your bill in Vista 18.
Minimum donation is $5.00. Donations over $20 will get an official tax receipt from the front desk or the Vista 18 host station on request.
Employees are also encouraged to donate & wish! We will have a separate prize draw for employees.
With each donation, guests & patrons fill out an entry form and include their ‘wish’, which they can place in a tree ornament (provided) and hang in our Forest of Wishes.
At the end of the campaign, each ornament/entry will be entered into a draw for two Chateau Victoria draw prizes.
