Grab your jingle bells and join me for what will surely be THE holiday party of the year! 900 North Michigan Shops will transform its atrium into a winter wonderland on Thursday, November 17, and they're inviting the Chicago community to join in!
A chorus of school choirs will welcome the arrival of Santa Claus (in a surprise mode of transportation!) as he makes his way to light the 50' tall Christmas tree! Pierre Lockett's darling dancers from Forward Momentum will perform a dance to Mariah Caray's "All I Want for Christmas is You"; the Chicago Children's Choir will usher in Santa's arrival with Christmas carols; Chicago vocalist Ava Fain will perform the holiday classic, "Santa Baby"; the Ruth Page Center for the Arts will open the evening with an excerpt from the fabled holiday classic, "The Nutcracker"; a raffle will include a chance to ride with Santa in his new sleigh--a Holiday Lights Tour via Chicago Helicopter Experience and so much more!
Kehoe Designs will bring the holiday dreamscape to life; Sur La Table will provide sugar cookie decorating; the Four Seasons Hotel Chicago will provide a fantastical chocolate-making machine creating custom chocolate bars onsite and Ketel One will sponsor a cocktail bar!
All of this FREE excitement will take place from 6- 8 pm at 900 N. Michigan with proceeds from a silent auction benefiting The Make-A-Wish Foundation--Illinois Chapter.
I hope you can join me and these darling co-hosts: Val Warner, Tom Kehoe, David Sanchez, D. Graham Kostic, Jessica Zweig, Trevor Heffernan, Joe Perillo, Julie Barrish, Corri McFadden, Pierre Lockett, Ana Belaval, D'Rita Robinson, Justin Jacobson and Nina Mariano for a memory-making night for a great cause!
