It's that time of year sports fans. Christmas tree lighting ceremonies are in full swing. If you're looking for something to get you in the holiday mood, why not check out the lighting of the Christmas tree at the Willis Tower later this afternoon? Blackhawks player Patrick Kane will be on hand for the flipping of the switch at 4 p.m. in the Willis Tower lobby. He will also help kick off the building's toy drive. All donations benefit Dreams for Kids, an organization for at-risk youths and youths with disabilities. These kids are taught to empower themselves through adaptive sports, leadership and community service opportunities.â†µâ†µ
The 48-foot-tall tree is decorated with 1,000 ornaments and 10,000 lights. A local choir will be on hand to sing Christmas Carols and representatives from Dreams for Kids will join Kane for the tree lighting ceremony.
