Two Charities We Proudly Support

Here at Christmas Central we are proud to partner with 2 great organizations in the Buffalo, NY community. We feel that supporting Western New York and the amazing people and neighbors of this area, together we can make a difference and take pride in watching Buffalo Rise!

Hospice of Buffalo

Hospice is a compassionate approach to care with the goal of assisting people with serious illnesses live life fully, maintain their dignity and keep control over their lives. Hospice provides medical care, emotional and spiritual support to people and their families facing life-limiting illness in homes, hospitals, adult facilities, nursing homes, group homes and our Hospice Inpatient Units located in Cheektowaga and Buffalo. Hospice is available to any one with an illness whose life expectancy is measured in months, rather than years. It takes very special and compassionate people to provide the kind of support that Hospice caregivers do on a daily basis. Please consider donating to Hospice Buffalo and join us in supporting this amazing organization. Donate Now!

Festival of Trees

An annual tradition in downtown Buffalo now for 35 years, this event is supported and organized by our community and is the main holiday fundraiser in support of Women & Children’s Hospital of Buffalo. Over the years Christmas Central and the Gordon Family have donated hundred of thousands of dollars in Christmas Decorations for the Festival.

Last year’s proceeds were earmarked for the new Children’s Hospital to be completed in December 2015. The Hospital’s move to the Buffalo Niagara Medical Campus and its new design will accommodate advances in medicine by more space for outpatient care, greater opportunity for recruitment of physicians and the ability for employees and visitors to get from one place to another much faster.

As Western New York’s premier holiday event, volunteers create a glittering display of beautifully decorated trees, wreaths, mantle & window displays, a Boutique filled with holiday home décor and stunning gifts. Also featured was a Gallery of Miracles, a walkway featuring stories of hospital patients, their artwork and a 10-foot tree adorned with hundreds of ornaments hand-painted by hospital patients.

The Festival of Trees has been helping the hospital set the standard in pediatric medical care by donating more than $5 million in support of important programs, facility improvements and groundbreaking technology. In previous years, the Festival of Trees has raised money to help with the purchase a $1.5 million CT Scan, purchased a state-of-the-art Ultrasound Machine for $200,000 for the hospital, funding for $8 million Renovation and Expansion of Neonatal Intensive Care Unit and $5 million Renovation and Expansion for the Pediatric Intensive Care Unit.

David Rasmussen Products Have Arrived!

Here at Christmas Central we are proud to announce the arrival of new products by David Rasmussen!  “David Rasmussen is one of only a handful of designers who also handcrafts his elegant and detailed work.” – davidrasmussendesign.com.  The goal of his products is to offer customers extraordinary design combined with construction that is built to last.  David takes pride in working with highly trained professionals to handcraft each piece using time-honored techniques.

When it comes to working with solid wood, there are always challenges.  It is continually ‘alive’ and ‘moves,’ depending on weather conditions, moisture content of the air and temperature.  David takes time to carefully sand his wood to be velvety smooth, and then finishes it with a food-safe, ultra durable oil that keeps the wood from interfering with food’s flavors and ensuring years of maintenance-free use.  The trim is done using a non-toxic water based acrylic paint.  David and his team hand-rub the finish in between each coat to maximize the natural color, grain patterns and beauty within.  This type of finish allows the wood to “breathe” in your home as it once did in a forest.

David Rasmussen Blog Photo    One of the many beautiful items by David Rasmussen you will find at Christmas Central is the handcrafted WUD wood wine glass with clear stem.  The WUD series is functional table art that draws influence from Danish modern design, redefining the functionality of serving ware.  This wine glass is manufactured from solid walnut hardwood and has a glass stem.  Not just a decorative piece, this glass is also fully sealed and will not affect the flavor of any drink you put in it.  In addition, it will also keep drinks cool longer than glass.  The glass also features the David Rasmussen Design hot iron brand stamp.

Our new products by David Rasmussen will make a great addition to your home.  Not only are they amazing works of art, they are also fully functional serving ware.  By visiting our site you will also find handcrafted walnut wood cutting boards, soap dishes, serving trays, and much more!
