Light Up the Season is a family-friendly event held at the Four Seasons Washington, DC, and takes place after Thanksgiving through the New Year. Since 2015, Light Up the Season has supported the inspiring patients, families, and staff of Children’s National Hospital.
As part of the holiday festivities, the Four Seasons decorates its lobby and public areas to the delight of all ages. The Four Seasons also hosts various events and fundraising promotions to benefit Children’s National. Events include Teddy Bear Teas, an outdoor marketplace with artisan vendors, and a kick-off party. In 2022, the Four Seasons engaged a premier, Chicago-based event design and décor company that transformed the property into a magical, multi-dimensional holiday dreamscape. This design firm interviewed eight Children’s National patients and made their holiday visions come to life by creating unique one-of-a-kind holiday vignettes.
Proceeds from Light Up the Season directly support the hospital through Annual Grants and Major Gift programs. Funding advances world-class pediatric care and research to find new treatments and cures. It supports critical medical equipment, improves the patient hospital experience and provides for professional development of doctors, nurses and hospital staff, as well as numerous initiatives to deliver healthcare to families in under-resourced communities.

Light Up The Season is such a festive and creative collaboration. The sparkle, merriment and joy of the events have my family coming back each year. Giving to those in need is important to us, particularly during the holidays. Children’s National Hospital performs near miracles every day. I can’t think of a more deserving cause. Light Up The Season makes philanthropic giving fun, meaningful and memorable.
