Intercontinental Jakarta Midplaza Shares the Spirit of Christmas
Christmas is all about giving children a magical experience filled with happy memories.
There were smiles all around as intercontinental Jakarta Midplaza celebrated the official launch of the festive season with its annual Christmas Tree Lighting Ceremony on 27 November 2014. This joyful event took place in the hotel’s Lobby Lounge, which was decorated in an uplifting display of purple and gold. A group of 66 little ones from Pondok Si Boncel orphanage were generously transported to the hotel to enjoy the festivities courtesy of Blue Bird Group. Located in Jagakarsa, South Jakarta, Pondok Si Boncel is a Catholic charity facility operating under the Vincentius Association. It provides a safe and nurturing home environment for children under the age of 7 years. The children, along with media partners and the hotel’s Christian staff members, gathered to watch the lighting of the Christmas tree. The hotel also took this opportunity to launch its Christmas Giving Tree, an inspiring initiative symbolizing community care. The tree was decorated with a collection of cards featuring the photos and Christmas wishes of children from Pondok Si Boncel. Guest were invited to choose a card and make an appropriate donation to ensure that every child received a gift.
