During the holidays, the ACNW Auxiliary hosts the following events and projects:

  • Teddy Bear Tea: Children from all over northwest Arkansas come together to experience tea, hot cocoa, cookies and story time and crafts with Santa. This ticketed event allows parents to shop local vendors while children enjoy a unique holiday experience.
  • My Bright Star: Stars line the streets of the Arkansas Children’s Northwest campus during the holiday season. You can bring joy to local patients by honoring a bright star in your life. Stars will go on sale during the month of November and be on display until mid-December.
