Georgetown Jingle: Christmas is officially here!

14 Dec

by Yulia Mikhalchuk

Georgetown Jingle “jingled” for 5th time. Happy Anniversary! Four Seasons Hotel on Pennsylvania avenue opened its doors and allowed hundreds of happy and ready to give back guests into warm decorated environment. If Santa’s sleigh really would run on Christmas spirit, just this event along would send it around the globe few times!

In 2010, Georgetown Jingle welcomed 22 new sponsors and more than 30 new auction, restaurant or gift bag sponsors.  Since 2006, when the event was created, GT has raised $1.3 million in support of Georgetown University Hospital’s Pediatric Oncology programs, specifically the Pediatric Bone Marrow Transplant Program (in collaboration with Duke University) and the Cancer Survivorship Program.

Whole family could enjoy the event. Everybody could sample delicious foods and desserts from DC favorite restaurants. Adults could shop for auction items and test their luck with raffle tickets, or just hang out in DC Magazine’s Sports Lounge. Kids had a blast at workshop where they could decorate cupcakes or holiday cards, and eat the firsts, make a wish on Santa’s lap, get goodie-bag with reindeer (guess who was the most popular? tip: he has red nose). Absolutely everybody’s favorite was live performance by Pamala Stanley – kids were jumping their energy off on stage and tried to mimic her dancing moves.

Dear Santa, everybody  tried so hard helping to fight childhood cancer… please don’t forget to include everybody in your “Nice” list. Merry Christmas!
