Christmas in Washington is a benefit concert for Children's National Medical center attended by the Obama family every year. President Obama had this to say about the event:

Tonight is a chance to get in the Christmas spirit, to spread some joy and sing along with artists who have much better voices than we do. But it’s also a chance to make a real difference in the lives of some very brave young people being treated at Children’s National Medical Center.  Many of these kids and their parents are going through tough times right now, and your support helps give them a reason to hope – not just during the holidays, but all year round.
