Cantigny joined up with local organizations to spread cheer by decorating trees for the holidays.
Seven area not-for-profits were selected to decorate a tree at the park’s Robert McCormick Mansion.
The McCormick Foundation gave each group 2,500 dollars for being selected.
At the end of the tour, visitors can vote for their favorite tree and the organization with the most votes will receive an additional 2,500 dollars from the McCormick foundation.
“We started the program last year and we thought decorating the house for Christmas is really nice, but we wanted to make it more relevant to our mission and what Robert McCormick stood for,” said Diane Gutenkauf, Director at The Robert McCormick Museum.
Some of the groups include; The DuPage Senior Council, Literacy
DuPage, Giving DuPage, and People’s Resource Center.
Guests are able to make contributions to each not-for-profit organization and the McCormick Foundation will match each donation.
