Sweet Home Chicago

December 11, 2022 @ 10:00 am - 1:00 pm

Join us on Sunday, December 11, 2022 for WINGS 19th Annual Sweet Home Chicago event!

Four Seasons Hotel Chicago, 10:00 AM to 1:00 PM

With the first priority being health and safety, we are planning a hybrid event format again this year. The important things will stay the same – sharing holiday cheer and supporting families impacted by domestic violence, who need help more than ever. Event sponsors will have an option of attending in person at The Four Seasons Chicago or celebrating from your home. We promise to include all of the traditional Sweet Home Chicago activities and ensure an enjoyable day with both options. Our traditional activities will include gingerbread house decorating, balloon artist, family portraits, ornament decorating, visiting with Santa and K-9 Comfort Dogs, and a special music performance by Ralph’s World.
