When it comes to the holiday season, we all would like to focus a little more on doing some good in the world. Something about Christmas just puts us in the giving mood, and it reminds us that we have the power to improve the lives of people around us near and far.
If you find yourself in the metro Detroit area this holiday season, there is a great event coming up that you can attend that benefits those in need. A portion of the proceeds will be donated to the Children’s Hospital of Michigan Foundation to support this year’s Snowpile Program, which is such a worthy cause. The Ugly Christmas Sweater Charity Party is both fun and charitable – so mark your calendar.
The Snowpile Program gives parents of hospitalized patients an opportunity to go “shopping” for presents for their child and his or her siblings for the holiday. It is a wonderful opportunity because it provides parents the chance to still give their families, and especially their children, a beautiful Christmas without having to leave their child’s bedside. If you are not in the area to attend the party but would still like to donate, here is a link with more information for you.
The party will be held Wednesday, December 23rd starting at 8 PM and the party won’t stop until 2 AM. The festivities will be hosted at The Townsend Hotel in Birmingham and you can purchase tickets here. There will be food and live music, and not to mention many, many ugly sweaters. For those attending the party, you can get a discounted room rate using the promo code: theug122315g.
Come out and rock the ugliest of your ugly sweaters to support a good cause! The entertainment line-up includes Killer Flamingos, Boji, DJ Paul Martindale, and Kysia Live! There will be a premium cash bar, pictures with Santa, and Christmas Carol Karaoke. At midnight, there will be a contest for the best ugly Christmas sweater with a grand prize of a free Spring Break Trip from StudentCity to one of their amazing destinations!
