Moonbeams for Sweet Dreams

2021 Moonbeams event canceled because of COVID-19 surge

Because of the latest COVID-19 surge and the high positivity rate in our community, we unfortunately must cancel this year’s Moonbeams for Sweet Dreams.

While we would love to have community members visit the campus and shine lights for the children, we must put the safety of our patients, staff and community first. We appreciate the community’s support and all of our volunteers who have dedicated their time to this important program. There will not be a virtual program, but we are looking forward to the return of this meaningful event in 2022.

The Child Life team at Beaumont Children’s will ensure pediatric patients feel love and support from the community this holiday season. Planned activities include holiday caroling with music therapy; special winter art therapy projects; hot chocolate delivery and gifts from Santa.

Our best wishes to you all for a happy, healthy holiday season!

What is Moonbeams for Sweet Dreams?

Boys at Beaumont Moonbeams

This cherished tradition started in 2016 by Beaumont Children’s nurses and child life specialists as a way of helping Beaumont’s youngest and bravest patients feel connected to their community during the holiday season.


Each December, community members from across Southeast Michigan visit the Beaumont, Royal Oak campus at approximately 8 p.m. to shine flashlights to remind pediatric patients they aren’t alone and wish them sweet dreams.



Thank you for your interest in celebrating the holidays with us and with Moonbeams for Sweet Dreams.
