GEORGETOWN JINGLE

The Four Seasons Hotel (2800 Pennsylvania Ave. NW) is home to some of the most unique Christmas trees and vignettes in the District, thanks to the creative input of Washington's interior design community. But while decorating a Christmas tree is fun, it's for a cause that everyone can rally behind. Sunday is the seventh annual Georgetown Jingle, which benefits MedStar Georgetown University Hospital's various children's oncology programs.

This year, the benefit will be divided into two parts. During the first part, from 1 to 4 p.m., children and their parents can decorate holiday treats and do craft projects. During the second part, which starts at 7 p.m., guests will get to see Pamela Stanley perform and sample delicious food and libations.
