WHAT: The Seaport Hotel and World Trade Center’s 7th annual Christmas in the City Celebrity Holiday Tree & Wreath Auction will take place on Thursday, December 6th from 6:00 – 9:00pm.
New this year - leading up to the event that evening, Felger & Mazz from WBZ-FM/98.5 the SPORTS HUB will broadcast Live from the Seaport Hotel from 2pm – 6pm, building excitement and support for Christmas in the City. Michael Felger and Tony Massarotti, as well as 98.5 the Sports Hub, have been longtime supporters and this year’s efforts will take that support to the next level!
The live auction at the event will include a one-of-a-kind Christmas tree and wreath decorated by local sports legends. The evening will feature additional silent and live auction items, raffles, tasty nibbles and a cash bar provided by the event sponsor, the Seaport Hotel & World Trade Center.
Guests are asked to please bring one, new unwrapped toy to donate as well; the event serves as the toy drive kick-off and 100% of the money raised goes to Christmas in the City to purchase additional toys and other bits of holiday magic to assist children in need.
Christmas in the City (http://www.christmasinthecity.org), a 100% volunteer organization, will hold its 30th Annual Holiday Party in December and is expecting to serve more children this year ever before and they need more support to meet the need. 5,000 children living in shelters or transitional housing will attend the celebration with their parent or guardian. The following day, Christmas in the City will give out toys and clothing, serving 13,000 more children whose families have fallen on hard times and otherwise might find nothing under the tree.
The Seaport Hotel will once again serve as a drop-off location for toys starting; those donating can drop toys directly at the valet parking station or in the hotel lobby.
