A tradition started in 2017, Light Up The Season, a family-friendly community fundraising event co-hosted by Children’s Health Board and Four Seasons Hotel Washington, DC, features patient and designer-decorated holiday trees, menorahs and wreaths. Every art piece includes the story of the unique collaboration between a Children’s National patient and a notable area designer and is available for purchase. The all-ages event offers holiday crafts, pop-up shopping, visits from Santa and Dr. Bear and light refreshments. Proceeds from Light Up The Season have funded grants for pediatric programs at Children’s National Hospital that directly benefit the health and well-being of children across the Washington, D.C. region.
I’ve been on several philanthropic boards but nothing like this one. This is an amazing group of bright and energized women who can roll up their sleeves, get to work and accomplish anything we set out to do. I have so much respect and admiration for our dedicated Board who, simply put, make things happen.
