This family-friendly event in Akron Children’s Hospital’s Atrium Lobby features refreshments, entertainment and culminates with the lighting of the tree in Perkins Square Park.

The tree will sparkle again this holiday season with thousands of blue and white lights. You can help light up the night by purchasing a light in honor or memory of someone special. Lights are sold individually or by the string. By supporting the Children’s Tree of Lights, you’re bringing hope and joy to all, including the children and families who come to Akron Children’s.

All proceeds benefit the hospital, and lights may be purchased in the following amounts:
• $10 – blue light
• $25 – white light
• $50 – string of blue lights
• $100 – string of white lights

Join in this wonderful tradition by purchasing a light to:
• Celebrate birthdays and holidays
• Say thank you
• Say congratulations
• Remember someone special

A permanent record of your gift will be kept in “The Children’s
Tree Memory Book” located at Akron Children’s Hospital.

Visit to purchase your lights by Nov. 20.
