SwedishAmerican Holiday Tree Lighting Celebration to Feature Therapy Dogs in Costumes

December 2, 2013

SwedishAmerican Hospital will kick off the holidays with its annual Holiday Tree Lighting. The celebration will be held on Thursday, December 5, from 2 to 4 p.m. in the Concourse area adjacent to the State Street entrance to the Hospital.

A highlight of the event will be therapy dogs from SwedishAmerican's Caring Canines program. The dogs, who have completed training and visit patients within the hospital, will be dressed in holiday attire.

In addition, SwedishAmerican Chief Operating Officer Rich Walsh will offer a brief holiday message, and local musician Carl Cole will entertain visitors throughout the afternoon. Holiday cookies, punch and coffee will be served to all.
