Long Description:
This delightful statue is a beautiful addition to the entry of Sanford Children’s Hospital. Surrounded by gardens and flowing water, this piece of art depicts philanthropist Denny Sanford with his grandchildren. It was designed by artist Gary Tillery of Timeless Creations in 2008 and placed on the grounds the following year.

A plaque tells more about the statue and the man whose financial contribution helped create the Sanford Children’s Hospital:

“For the Love of Children. This sculpture of Denny Sanford with his grandchildren, William, Orla and Ewen (right to left) symbolizes Mr. Sanford’s great love for children and his commitment to help them have the best life possible. Mr. Sanford’s contribution to create the Sanford Children’s Hospital was his inaugural gift to Sanford Health and began the Denny Sanford legacy of making a real different in the lives of children here in our community, state, region, nation, and the world.

“This sculpture sponsored in admiration for Denny Sanford’s generosity and its transformational impact on the well being of the children of our region by South Dakota Furniture Mart, Bill and Carolyn Hinks, and the Hinks Family Foundation. 2009”
