to be determined

To round out the holiday season, the Founders’ Board’s Winter Wishes: Holiday Outreach Event brought over 1,400 students from various Chicago Public Schools to experience Navy Pier’s Winter Wonderfest for free.

For several weeks of the holiday season, Navy Pier transforms its Festival Hall into every child’s dream - a 170,000 square-foot winter wonderland. The venue is decorated with hundreds of trees and 20,000 icicle lights, offering dozens of holiday rides and attractions including a children’s train, an Arctic ice rink, and an enormous gingerbread house for Santa and his elves.

During the Founders’ Board’s Winter Wishes: Holiday Outreach Event, over 1,400 students from various Chicago Public Schools are invited to experience Navy Pier’s Winter Wonderfest for free. Board Members have the opportunity to volunteer at this event, helping students decorate holiday trees, serving as chaperones at the event, and engaging with corporations who have supported the Founders’ Board’s Winter Wishes: Holiday Cocktail Celebration.
