Love Light and Trim the Tree With Twinkle

December 08, 2015

Tomorrow the 30th annual Love Light Tree lighting ceremony will be taking place on Raleigh Campus beginning a 6 pm.

After the tree lighting ceremony families are invited to:

  • Get a picture with Santa in his sleigh (Parents: It’s the best place to see Santa in the Triangle)
  • Make ornaments to decorate the trees in the Children’s Hospital and Children’s Emergency Department
  • Celebrate the excellent Children’s health services we have available in Wake County through a personal patient story.  This year, we will hear from the Dapo family about whose infant daughter Annalise was born with a rare medical condition called esophageal atresia, where the upper part of the esophagus does not connect with the lower esophagus and stomach.

Learn more about Annalise and her story by watching this recent TV story or reading the Families First article.
