Akron Children's tree lighting brightens up Boardman

Posted: Updated:

Akron Children's Hospital in Boardman spread a little Christmas cheer Wednesday night with their holiday tree lighting ceremony.

The tree lighting marks a decade of service to the Mahoning Valley.

Hospital and community leaders reflected on the growth and success of the campus over its first decade while sharing the hospital's long-term vision for growth in the region. 

Grace Wakulchick, President and CEO of Akron Children's Hospital, said  "It's been an amazing privilege to serve the kids and families of the Mahoning Valley. We started out 10 years ago as a small service and our business has grown tremendously and we attribute that to the great support of the community."

The public was invited to take part in different winter activities and children were able to meet with Santa Claus.
