Following their 18-year-old daughter Kelsea through her recovery from cancer at age 13, the Henderson family now spends their holiday time brightening the lives of those still in need.

Sandra Lee Celebrates: Season of Surprise

HGTV Design Star finalist Dan Vickery makes a special guest appearance and uses his carpentry skills to help Sandra create unique d�cor items for each child.

Sandra Lee Celebrates: Winter Wonderland Party

Saturday, December 19 at 8 p.m. ET/PT

Vy, still living with her family in the brownstone her grandmother bought almost 100 years ago, will work with Sandra to throw an over-the-top holiday party for her neighborhood. With a classic holiday menu that will feed a large crowd - along with festive, budget-friendly d�cor ideas - viewers will see Sandra transform the family's traditional New York dwelling into the ultimate winter wonderland party.

"Sandra Lee Celebrates is a return to all the things I love and that my company stands for," said Sandra Lee. "Combining creative design elements and delicious food to create spectacular memorable celebrations for family and friends that go beyond the scope of what people think they can afford or do."
