Special Events

In an abundance of caution due to current state of the COVID-19 pandemic, the Friends of Sunny Hill Board Members have made the difficult decision to cancel our annual Sunshine Holiday Gift Bazaar and Luncheon which was scheduled for Friday, October 29, 2021 at Sunny Hill Nursing Home of Will County.  The event will be rescheduled during our National Long-Term Care Week Celebration in May 2022.

But the faithful and happy shoppers at our Bazaar and our Sweets & Treats Gift Shoppe – do not be sad!

Our Volunteers are happy to offer some of our best and beautiful gift items to you for purchase!  If you would like to purchase any of the following items, they will be available for curb pick up (cash or check only) at Sunny Hill Nursing Home, 421 Doris Avenue, Joliet.

Call Danette at 815-727-8711 to secure your items and make arrangements to pick up! (Quantities are limited.)
