-- Texas Scottish Rite Hospital for Children (TSRHC) hosted a fun-filled “Christmas in July” celebration for patients and their families. For the 13th year, Santa Claus and Mrs. Claus arrived at TSRHC in a red Dodge Viper to spread holiday cheer at the hospital and take pictures with patients. Prior to Santa’s arrival, patients participated in holiday activities, such as garland making, cookie and ornament decorating and other festive activities. Bread Winners Café donated cookies for the event and Hunt Oil Company donated Christmas gifts for TSRHC patients.
The “Christmas in July” event took place on Friday, July 20, 2012 from 9am – noon at Texas Scottish Rite Hospital for Children 2222 Welborn Street Dallas, Texas 75219.
