Everyone gather 'round! MetroHealth to host holiday tree-lighting ceremony

We already know the forecast for the evening of Saturday, December 1: Lots of warmth.

Warmth from free hot cocoa and baked treats, live music performances, tree lighting and, most of all, a community coming together.

The MetroHealth System, Turner Construction and Councilwoman Jasmin Santana are hosting the Season to Celebrate community event on Saturday, December 1, 4:00 - 6:30 p.m. on the outdoor quad near our iconic hospital towers at 2500 MetroHealth Drive. There will be free parking in the Sackett lot (between MetroHealth drive and W. 25th Street) for the duration of the event.

In addition to the free hot cocoa and baked goods, live performances by The MetroHealth System Employee Choir, the Urban Community School Choir, and flutist Gayle Getts. La Mega will be broadcasting live, and the tree lighting will take place at 6:00 p.m.

(Special thanks to Johnny’s Bar and Floressa Café for providing hot cocoa and baked goods at the event!)
