The Magnificent Mile Light Festival

GiGi’s Playhouse had the privilege to be a part of the Magnificent Mile Light Festival this year. We got to walk alongside so many foundations and groups. In the cold air, we were able to spread our holiday cheer like wildfire. We passed around hot chocolate with stickers to inform people about GiGi’s as well as how to donate. Even though we had 5,000 hot chocolate packets, we ran out halfway through the parade. Spreading joy, acceptance, and the love of chocolate to everyone in Chicago.

We hope to be a part of next year’s celebration and this time have enough hot chocolate packets for the whole family! It was such a magical time in the city to be with people who stand with you for the same cause and mission.
