Corey Crawford is a fan of sparkly things.

The Blackhawks goaltender, who led the team to the Stanley Cup title in June, will light the tree at Willis Tower on Monday. While it's not quite as shiny as the Cup, the 1,000 ornaments might make it seem that way. Crawford also will kick off the building's holiday toy drive.

The event begins at 4 p.m. with Crawford flipping the switch to the 10,000 lights on the building's 48-foot tree, joined by choral students from Catherine Cook School.

The toy drive will run through Dec. 13. All donations will benefit children served by the USO of Illinois.
