Illuminate 900 Holiday Tree Lighting

After a 3-year hiatus, Illuminate 900 returned for a festive celebration at the 900 North Michigan Shops. A group of students from After School Matters joined other performances to kick-off the Holidays with a 50ft tall tree holding center court surrounded by seasonal delights, like sugar-cookie decorating, elves, Santa and more.  The performance was a triumph and the tree lighting, a beautiful way to launch the holiday season.
