Holiday Cheer

On December 16, Georgetown Jingle decks the halls for a worthy cause

Each year, DC’s Four Seasons Hotel in Georgetown provides an elegant backdrop to the season’s most festive fundraiser: the Georgetown Jingle. The 2012 event will showcase holiday trees and vignettes by 17 area design teams, whose creative efforts will be on display and available for purchase beginning November 28.

The Georgetown Jingle raises funds for the Pediatric Oncology Programs at Georgetown University Hospital. Each design team takes inspiration for their trees and vignettes by pairing with a young patient ambassador.

Since parts of the Four Seasons are under construction, the December 16 festivities will be divided into two smaller events this year. The first will take place during the day, when families may bring kids to visit Santa, make holiday crafts and enjoy a children’s buffet and desserts. In the evening, adults will enjoy cocktails, restaurant tastings and live music by Pamala Stanley.  Silent auctions and raffles will be held at both events.

Since 2006, the Jingle has raised about $2 million. For tickets, visit georgetown
