Beaumont Hospital has held Moonbeams for Sweet Dreams every December since 2017 — this year the event will be different due to the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic.
The event was started to help fight the feeling of isolation children felt while stuck inside a hospital during the holidays. They gave the patients flashlights to wave out their windows for five minutes each night — hoping that community members would come with flashlights and wave back. The community came out in force.
The hospital said it’s not safe for people to gather outside the Beaumont Hospital in Royal Oak this year — so instead they’re turning the fourth annual Moonbeams for Sweet Dreams event into a virtual experience. It runs from Dec. 1 through Dec. 31.
