Santa arrives at Children’s Hospital for Tree Lighting event

Chattanooga, Tenn. – With the help from several community organizations and businesses, Santa arrived at Children’s Hospital at Erlanger on December 1 to kick off the holiday season.

The hospital lobby was filled with patients, family members, hospital staff and many volunteers as Santa rolled up to the entrance in Walden’s Ridge Fire Department’s bright red fire truck.

One by one, children hung ornaments on the tree, sat on Santa’s lap and received a gift for being excellent patients during their stay at the hospital.  Reindeer and elf volunteers were seen scurrying about making sure everything was just right.

Children’s Hospital would like to thank the following for providing holiday cheer and surprises to those who attended the event.
