The Oishei Children's Hospital held their annual tree lighting ceremony for the first time at their new hospital on Tuesday night. 

The event allows families, patients, and hospital staff to have a night of gingerbread decorating, photo ops with Santa, and meet and greet opportunities with the Bills. 

This is all in an attempt to show the children that being at the hospital isn't always a scary thing. 

"It isn't scary when they walk in, it isn't scary when they're in the hospital being cared for" Oishei President Allegria Jaros said.
