Otto Kaiser Christmas party draws hundreds
Volunteers Dianna Perez and Martina Gonzalez welcome attendees to the Holiday on the Hill Community Christmas Party.
Otto Kaiser Memorial Hospital drew huge crowds Dec. 18 to its first-ever Holiday on the Hill Community Christmas Party. More than 1,200 residents came out to enjoy a night full of fun, festivities, and snow.
Santa visited with more than 600 children and parents, hearing their Christmas wishes and posing for photos. Truckloads of snow were brought in to make for a white Christmas, while hot chocolate and s’mores kept folks warm.
There was a packed house in the craft room where kids could make ornaments and picture frames, and a fun photo booth where folks could dress up and mug for the cameras. Pony rides were a huge draw as children were able to take a spin around the hospital courtyard and also visit with animals in the petting zoo.
The hospital promises that this will be an annual event and wishes to thank their local sponsors who helped make it such a great success, including Conoco Phillips, Marathon Oil, TEE Oilfield Services, Angel Care Ambulance, King Carpet Cleaning, and the Kenedy Chamber of Commerce.
