Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the hospital is not be able to hold its annual Pumpkin Party and costume dress-up for patients and families. Instead, the hospital will bring the party to the kids via a virtual program of Autumn-themed activities including music, dancing, pumpkin decorating, and arts and crafts. The virtual program, which patients can access on their in-room video monitors, is made possible thanks to corporate sponsorships from Dayle and Ken Roath, Delta Air Lines, Warner Bros., CBRE, Media West Realty and FOX’s hit series THE MASKED SINGER.
