The holiday season is a difficult time of year for families who have children at the Golisano Children's Hospital. Supporters got together Sunday for the winterfest event to benefit the hospital.

The "Beauty at Your Best" Winterfest was held Sunday at the Ridgecrest Plaza on Ridge Road in Greece. Visitors could get pictures taken with Santa, shop around for stocking stuffers and the kids could make cards for other children in the hospital.
News10NBC spoke to one father who knows firsthand how lucky the Rochester area is to have Golisano Children's Hospital.

Jeremy Welsher's daughter was treated at Golisano's.

“My daughter was... she had a liver transplant at Golisano and the experience at the hospital was the greatest experience ever and I'm thankful that the hospital was close to us and they were able to do it here locally for us.”

All of the money raised is donated to the Golisano Children's Hospital.
