The Children’s Wonderland is one of a whole host of events planned for this year’s Festival of Lights, Nov. 27 to Dec. 1.

Stettler is ready to get Festive!

21st annual holiday fundraiser supports hospital’s palliative care room

Are you ready to get festive?

From the moment the first pancakes hit the grill until the last Denim & Diamond revellers leave the dance floor, Stettler will be decked out in holiday spirit!

The 21st annual Stettler Festival of Lights offers five days of festive fun for the whole family, but more importantly, all proceeds go to the Stettler Health Care Centre. This year in particular, funds will support the hospital’s palliative care room.

“So many people say it’s the kick-off for the Christmas season,” says committee chairperson Amy Roberts, noting the committee works to create events that allow people to participate at all price levels.

Also a nurse, Roberts knows first-hand the importance the event has for the hospital and community.

Generous support in recent years has brought annual totals around $100,000, allowing for purchases ranging from instrument trays to maternity beds.

Last year, just in time for their 20th anniversary, the cumulative totals topped $1-million – funds that have enhanced the care patients can enjoy closer to home. “Over the last few years, people have been taking notice of the Stettler Hospital,” Roberts reflects.

“We have such an amazingly generous community – it’s just so special.”

So mark your calendars – there’s LOTS happening all week at the Stettler Community Hall!
