A annual tree lighting event had to go virtual this year in light of COVID-19 restrictions

The Beverly Knight Olson Children’s Hospital, Navicent Health (BKO) was held on December 7 at 6:00 p.m. through Facebook Live.

The lighting featured Jonas and Josiah Seabrooks, seven-year-old twins from Macon that lit the tree in honor of all of the hospital’s young patients and the children the hospital served across middle Georgia.

Jonas and Josiah were born prematurely and spent time in the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit at BKO, where Jonas also underwent surgery according to a press release. 

“A Night of Lights is a wonderful holiday tradition that celebrates the tenacity of our youngest patients, and their loved ones. Even though we will not be gathering in person this year, this is still a fun, family-friendly event and a great way to kick off the holiday season.

In fact, we hope more people will be able to join us online than have traditionally come in person to A Night of Lights!” said Missi Upshaw, Director of Pediatric and Women’s Services, Navicent Health.
