Some of you may or may not know a lot about Dave’s wife Cathy. Cathy has a big heart and is willing to go the extra mile to make sure a job gets done right. Together, they have five children and eight grandchildren.
Ten years ago, their son in law, Byron Edwards passed away unexpectedly. In his memory, Cathy decided to decorate and donate a Christmas tree to the Festival of Trees in Salt Lake.
Then, three years later, their oldest grandson Jack was born with some major medical complications. The doctors only gave him a 10% chance of survival. He was in the intensive care unit at Primary Children’s Hospital for almost four months. The nurses and doctors at Primary Children’s did an excellent job and saved his life. He is now fully recovered and a healthy, happy, seven year old boy.
In memory of Byron and as an expression of their gratitude for what Primary Children’s Hospital did for Jack, every year Cathy teams up with a couple of close friends and decorates a tree. The tree is then donated to the Festival of Trees which raises money for the Primary Children’s Hospital in Salt Lake City. She has found great pleasure in doing this as a way to pay it forward to other families who use the services of Primary Children’s Hospital.
This year, Cathy and her team decorated the tree with snowmen along with a lot of beautiful and fun ornaments. The tree was auctioned off and sold for $5,000.00. She was very happy that she and her team could raise that much for the Primary Children’s Hospital.
Enjoy scrolling through the pictures of the tree! The tree is beautiful!!!!

Each year the Young Family and friends donate a fully decorated tree to Primary Childrens Hospital fundraiser called The Festival of Trees. There are over 800 trees at the festival, each with its own unique style: ornate, whimsical, creative, humorous, classic, and sentimental. Every penny from the tree auction at the Festival of Trees benefits children at Primary Children’s Hospital.
This year Cathy and team out did themselves, our tree sold for $6500! To see pictures of the amazing tree Click Here.
The tradition of the Festival of Trees started for the Young Family after their first Grandson Jack was born as an expression of gratitude to the doctors and nurses at Primary Childrens Medical Center who saved baby Jacks life.
Jack had some major medical complications and the doctors only gave him a ten percent chance of survival. He was in the intensive care unit at Primary Children’s Hospital for almost four months. The nurses and doctors at Primary Children’s did an excellent job and saved his life. He is now fully recovered and a healthy, happy, six year old boy.
On behalf of all of us at Paragon Wealth Management, we would like to wish you a Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!
