The Driskill helps Season for Caring in other ways. Tuesday night, Nikki Jones and her daughter, Adeline, will light the Christmas tree and spend the night in the hotel. This is an amazing treat for Jones, who has common variable immune deficiency, which means she is prone to infections. She’s 35 and her life expectancy is estimated to be 45.
This is the third year a Season for Caring family has had this honor.
When: 6 p.m. Tuesday
Where: Driskill Hotel, 604 Brazos St.
