Georgetown’s Four Seasons Hotel will host the “Light Up the Season” fundraising benefit for the Children’s National Health System on Sunday, featuring designer-decorated holiday trees as well as music from local groups and schools.

The family event, which will take place from 1 to 4 p.m. at 2800 Pennsylvania Ave. NW, will give participants a chance to decorate cookies, design holiday ornaments, make holiday cards for patients at Children’s National Medical Center and visit with Santa, who will be in attendance.

The hotel will be collaborating with the Children’s Health Board for the event, which will raise money for children’s health services. Tickets cost $100 per adult, $50 per child or $250 for a family of four. For details, visit

Decorations at the hotel were designed and created by patients of the Children’s National Health System as well as by local decorating businesses, according to a release. The decorations will be on display and available for sale from Nov. 28 until Dec. 20.

Decor will include holiday trees by 13 local design consultants, mantels by four decorating companies, wreaths by two decorators and a menorah made by a local interior design company.

Participants at the event will also hear music from the Bethesda-Chevy Chase High School Choir, the British International School of Washington Performance Choir, the Metropolitan School of the Arts, cellist Benjamin Gates and harpist Victoria Paytonwebber.
