CHICAGO – November 17, 2015 – This holiday season, Trump International Hotel & Tower® Chicago invites both Chicagoans and visitors to celebrate the holidays by offering seasonal activities and holiday gift items for purchase to raise funds for Eric Trump Foundation benefiting St. Jude Children's Research Hospital®. Kicking off on Saturday, November 21, the downtown Chicago hotel – located steps from the annual BMO Harris Bank Magnificent Mile Lights Festival® – hosts its annual Reindeer on the River family-friendly celebration, followed by an evening wine tasting event in the Grand Foyer. The festive spirit continues with seasonal activities, holiday-inspired gifts for purchase and special services from The Spa at Trump offered through the end of the year.

On Saturday, November 21 from 3 to 8 p.m., the property’s annual Reindeer on the River returns to Trump Chicago and the afternoon’s special guests are sure to get you into the holiday spirit – live reindeer and Santa and Mrs. Claus!

This afternoon of family fun includes music, photo opportunities with the reindeer and Santa and Mrs. Claus as well as festive accessories, hot cocoa, warm cider and snacks for sale. All proceeds benefit St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital to ensure families never receive a bill from St. Jude for treatment, travel, housing, or food because all a family should worry about is helping their child live.

A new addition to Reindeer on the River in 2015, The Spa at Trump also introduces a pop-up Spa-liday tent on the Riverwalk from 3 to 8 p.m. A massage therapist will provide chair massages to guests – with proceeds going back to St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital – as well as several gift items from the spa’s fabulous retail shop available for sale.
