O Construction Tree

When contemplating a theme for the 2015 Holiday Tree Festival, the BMI staff decided on the “O’ Construction Tree” theme.

Utility Contractor managing editor Pam Kleineke was filled with holiday cheer as she helped decorate BMI’s “O’ Construction Tree.”



Each year, as the holiday season approaches, the Benjamin Media Inc. (BMI) team looks for ways to give back to the surrounding communities. This year, BMI (Trenchless Technology‘s publisher) is proud to be part of the 34th annual Holiday Tree Festival to benefit Akron Children’s Hospital with our “O’ Construction Tree.”

Since 1982, the Holiday Tree Festival has raised more than $4.7 million for the hospital. In 2014, the Holiday Tree Festival raised $300,000 to support patient care programs, education and research at the hospital.

Thank you to our industry friends, and BMI staff for their kind donations and support. And kudos to our internal events team, especially Utility Contractor managing editor Pam Kleineke for her passion for the holidays and the great idea for the construction theme.

The trees will be available for purchase Nov. 20. To find out more, or to support Akron Children’s Hospital, follow this link to the Tree Festival website.

Have a great holiday season and drive safe around the construction zones !
