The Grand View Auxiliary invites you to participate in its 38th Annual Festival of Lights to be held in-person at 7 p.m. on Wednesday, December 1, in the main lobby of Grand View Hospital. Our event will include holiday music, the reading of names, and the illumination of the trees outside the main lobby of the hospital. Refreshments will be served following the program.
