From Special Reports

Piedmont Newnan is excited to kick off the holiday season with our third annual Starry Night – A Celebration of the Season event, scheduled for Thursday, Nov. 30, from 4:30 p.m. to 7:30 p.m. and the community is invited to attend.

The family-friendly event will take place at Piedmont Newnan Hospital and will feature photos with Santa Claus, refreshments, kid’s activities and holiday carolers. The event will conclude with the lighting of the star on top of the hospital.

The star, donated by the hospital volunteers, will stay lit each night throughout the holiday season.

“This has been a very exciting year at Piedmont Newnan with the opening of the Faye Hendrix-Ware Breast Health Center and the expansion of cardiology to add percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI)” said Piedmont Newnan CEO Mike Robertson. “As a local community hospital, we continue to look at ways to expand services that help save lives, prevent disease and keep people closer to home for the care they need. We have so much to be thankful for, including your support, and look forward to celebrating with all of our friends in the community at this annual holiday event.”

This year, Piedmont Newnan encourages those attending to help those in need in the community by bringing an unwrapped toy for Toys for Tots. The hospital will serve as a local Toys for Tots collection point from Nov. 30 through Dec. 14. The Fayette/Coweta Toys for Tots program was launched in 2011 and served over 6,000 local children in 2016.
