The Georgetown Jingle celebrates the season for a worthy cause on December 11


The annual Georgetown Jingle at the Four Seasons Hotel Washington, DC, celebrates design and the holidays—while raising funds for the Pediatric Bone Marrow Transplant Unit at Georgetown University. This year, 12 area designers will partner with young “patient ambassadors" to create festive trees and holiday vignettes that will festoon the hotel. Guests at the Jingle will also enjoy chef’s tastings from DC’s hottest eateries while a children’s workshop treats kids to craft making, cookie decorating, movie watching, dancing and a visit with Santa.

Funds raised from the sale of designers’ creations; an elaborate silent auction of luxury vacations, furniture, toys, sports packages and restaurant and spa certificates; and admissions all benefit the hospital. Since 2006, the Georgetown Jingle has raised $1.7 million for the cause.

The sixth annual Georgetown Jingle will take place on December 11 from 4 to 8 pm. Admission is $150 per person, $50 per child or $350 for a family of four. Visit
