WCH staff, clinicians and volunteers get into the holiday spirit at the 2017 Holiday Celebration

December 18, 2017

By Atifa Hamir

Women’s College Hospital (WCH) staff, clinicians and volunteers shared some festive cheer at the annual Holiday Celebration on December 14 in the Pink Cube.

Attendees mixed and mingled while enjoying light refreshments and holiday music. As part of the celebration, hospital staff and volunteers signed up in teams to take part in the annual gingerbread decorating contest. Competition was fierce, with only one week to build a winning house. Submission themes ranged from classical holiday-themed houses and winter log cabins to artistic displays inspired by Pixar and Disney’s Up, Netflix’s Stranger Things and Charles M. Schulz’s famous cartoon character, Snoopy.

All submissions were put on display in front of the Pink Cube, where party goers could take pictures of their favourite houses and admire the work of their talented colleagues. Ballots were available for those who wanted to submit a vote for their favourite house. The first and second place winners of the contest are as follows:

  • 1st place: Gingerbread Express by Women’s College Research Institute
  • 2nd place: Cheer “UP”, Accreditation is over! by Occupational Health and Safety

Congratulations to the winners and thank you to everyone who participated! Submissions will be on display in the Heritage Case in the Peter Gilgan Atrium, across from the Information Desk, until Thursday, December 21.
