WHAT:  Batson Children’s Hospital will celebrate the holidays at its 25th annual Light-a-Light ceremony.
 


WHEN:
 Tuesday, December 10 at 6:00 p.m.
 


WHERE: Batson Children’s Hospital lobby



WHY:
Ballet Mississippi will perform excerpts from The Nutcracker for the patients and light refreshments will be served at the celebration, which culminates in the official lighting of the Christmas tree by the 2013 Children’s Miracle Network Champion, John Matthew Davis, and EJ and Traci Lee of The Radio People’s Mix 98.7 and US 96.3 respectively. 
 


The ceremony is the oldest fund-raising event for the Friends of Children’s Hospital, a non-profit organization of volunteers, community leaders, patient family members, employees and longtime supporters of Batson Children’s Hospital. Each individual light on the Christmas tree has been purchased in honor or memory of someone.
