Julian Edelman Joins Christmas in the City for Celebrity Holiday Tree Auction & Toy Drive Kick-off at the Seaport Hotel and World Trade Center


The Seaport Hotel and World Trade Center’s 5th annual Christmas in the City Celebrity Holiday Tree Auction and Toy Drive Kick-off will take place on Wednesday, December 7th and they have recruited a special guest to help make it the greatest event yet, as the need is greater than ever! Longtime Christmas in the City supporter, wide receiver Julian Edelman, will do the first public reading of his newly released children’s book, Flying High, exclusively for attendees. Flying High is partially autobiographical; it is the story of a passionate squirrel that learns the value of hard work, with some of Edelman’s gridiron pals appearing in the book as well. 

Edelman will also take part in a live auction; it will include a one-of-a-kind Christmas tree, decorated by the wide receiver, as well as a select number of signed copies of his book— the perfect gift for young family members.

The evening will feature additional silent and live auctions, raffles, tasty nibbles and a cash bar provided by the event sponsor, the Seaport Hotel & World Trade Center. 100% of money raised goes to Christmas in the City for toys and other bits of holiday magic to assist children in need.

Christmas in the City (http://www.christmasinthecity.org), a 100% volunteer organization, will hold its 28th Annual Holiday Party in December and is expecting to serve thousands more children this year – so they need more support than ever to meet the need. 5,000 children living in shelters, hotels or transitional housing will attend the celebration with their parent or guardian. The following day, Christmas in the City will give out toys and clothing, serving 13,000 more children whose families have fallen on hard times and otherwise might find nothing under the tree. The Seaport Hotel will once again serve as a drop-off location for toys; those donating can drop toys directly at the valet parking station or in the hotel lobby beginning on Tuesday, November 29th.
