Light Up the Season

Friday, December 2, 2022 – Monday, January 2, 2023
Four Seasons Washington, DC

Join us this holiday season as we partner again with the Four Seasons Hotel, Washington, DC to host Light Up the Season 2022. This year, Four Seasons Washington, DC engaged a premier, event design and décor company to transform the property into a magical, multi-dimensional holiday dreamscape. This firm will work with Children’s National patients to create one-of-a-kind holiday trees, a menorah and other festive décor. Guests and visitors of the property will delight in viewing these inspirational works of art.

Proceeds from the Four Seasons outdoor holiday marketplace and Teddy Bear Teas will directly support the hospital through the Board’s Annual Grants and Major Gift programs. Learn More
