For the 25th time, the Port Huron Hospital Foundation welcomed the community to kick off their Christmas season with Festival of Trees, Silver Bells. Thousands enjoyed the twinkling lights, beautiful trees, figure skaters and that familiar "Ho Ho Ho" from Santa. Raising $125,000, the community can be proud to be a part of bringing the newest in medical technology to our neighborhood! We are changing lives with the da Vinci Surgical Robot and the new 160-Slice CT Scanner!
Thank you to each and every one of you who supported our efforts.
The 26th annual Festival of Trees will be held December 6-7, 2014. Check back later for more details!
