What a magical night in Harbor East for our 2016 Milk and Cookies Social! We had a wonderful time with the hundreds of you who came out for cookies, merriment, and more!

In the warmth of the Courtyard by Marriott hotel, attendees enjoyed button making with The Walters Art Museum, visits with Mrs. Claus, made milk and cookie snack packs for children at non-profit organizations served by Jewish Volunteer Connection, wrote letters to Santa, noshed on delicious food provided by Whole Foods, got their faces painted, had their hair done by Haute Blow Dry Bar, made popsicle stick ornaments, and created their own mixed-media paper collages. Out on Aliceanna Street, there was live music by the Maryland Children’s Chorus, a living statue, balloon artistry, reindeer scavenger hunts, complimentary wine, and more — all under 17,000 lights!

Many thanks to our sponsor and merriment-making partner-in-crime, Harbor East, for hosting us for a 5th year! Can’t wait to do it again next holiday season.
