There is still time to join other Lone Pine families as we bring a little joy to hospitalized children this holiday season by lighting up the night as part of Beaumont Hospital's Moonbeams for Sweet Dreams program. We have had an overwhelmingly positive response to this call. We did call the organizer of the event to make sure they can accommodate all of the Lone Pine families. The organizer responded the more the merrier!
Here are the days we’ll be at Beaumont:
You can choose any (or all) of the nights to join. Please arrive by 7:50 pm to be ready to shine lights at 8 pm. The event is surrounding the South Tower of Beaumont Hospital (though you will park at the North Tower parking deck). Carpooling is recommended.
Beaumont Royal Oak is located at 3601 W. Thirteen Mile Road, Royal Oak, MI 48073.
Here is a campus map: https://www.beaumont.org/docs/default-source/maps-parking/beaumont-royal-oak-campus.pdf?sfvrsn=2 Once on campus, follow the blue signs toward the North parking deck and park in the lot to the right of the Medical Office Building (near North Deck Drive)
We are asked to be creative with our lighting. We can bring music or perform caroling if we decide. We are asked to not bring any laser lights.
We will hand out glow-in-the-dark necklaces to the Lone Pine families so that we’ll recognizable as a group. Please look for the group with glow-in-the-dark necklaces.
As a reminder of what this event is about –
Through Moonbeams for Sweet Dreams, Beaumont’s Pediatric Family Advisory Council has found a way to let hospitalized children know they’re not alone. With the help of the community, we can make sure the children go to bed with smiles on their faces. During the month of December, community members are asked to bring a flashlight and take a moment to join the Council outside of the Beaumont Children’s Hospital (South Tower of Beaumont Royal Oak) each night to say goodnight to these special young patients. The children will be anxiously awaiting our arrival with flashlights of their own. At 8 pm every evening, they will flash their lights from their hospital windows and look for us to flash back from outside. It’s simple and easy. It only takes a few minutes but will mean a great deal to these children and their families.
