A holiday tradition is back this year at one Eastern Carolina hospital

WASHINGTON, N.C. (WITN) – A hospital in the east is hosting a tree lighting and some famous faces will be making an appearance.

Monday night at 6 p.m. East Carolina Beaufort Hospital in Washington is holding its Lights of Love tree lighting ceremony to ring in the holiday season.

The lights on the tree are symbolic of donations that have been made to the Lights of Love program to fund projects at the hospital. Santa Claus is expected to be there, as well as, WITN’s Dave Jordan.
