Love Light

Each December, the Love Light Tree is lit by one of WakeMed's former pediatric patients. A tradition which first started in 1985, people can make donations in honor or memory of someone special. Following the ceremony, children have an opportunity to trim the tree with Twinkle as well as enjoy other holiday crafts, pictures with santa, and more.
