Traditionally, families gather around the Christmas tree to open presents––but at the American Cancer Society Christmas Fantasy House, individual traditions are magnified. The 2009 house, for example, featured not one but five Christmas trees, each draped in ribbons and white lights. Other years' open houses have featured a jolly Santa Claus, dining room chairs hung with pinecone wreaths, and flower-festooned light fixtures. Visitors not only peruse the Christmas-themed home for charity, they can also shop for sweets or enter holiday-themed raffles.
Proceeds from the event go to the American Cancer Society, a volunteer-based program that reaches 3,400 communities nationwide. The ACS supports research, education, advocacy for all types of cancer, and helps a large number of cancer patients, offering phone counseling 24 hours a day, seven days a week.

Trusted by an international array of designer and celebrity clientele such as Chanel and Barbara Walters for their garment savvy and sunny dispositions, Madame Paulette's couture cleansers have banished stains and grime from delicate wearables with prime equipment since 1959. A patented, detail-oriented process gently lifts dirt away from the fragile fibers of wool, cashmere, or silk garments, preventing shrinkage by keeping the garments away from water and free of embarrassment. Furs, leathers, and suede receive a suds-free cleanse sensitive to the delicate dyes they may contain, before a glazing technique returns essential oils to keep threads shiny and pliable. Meticulous cleaners immortalize a wedding day's starring outfit with preservation and sealing techniques that ensure future generations can see the family heirloom and evidence of ‘80s day-glo gowns with their own eyes.
