SPARKLE AND SHINE
ION Orchard celebrated the season of giving in style. Its charitable drive kicked off on Nov 5 with the Trees of Kindness Charity Auction. This event saw VIP members and loyal shoppers bidding to “adopt” 12 Christmas trees specially designed by key brands at the mall. The funds raised went to the Community Chest-supported Rainbow Centre – Yishun Park School.
Shopping at ION Orchard was also made more joyous with wrapping paper designed by four students from the school, in collaboration with the mall. Adding to the festive atmosphere was the dazzling decor. The highlight of the winter wonderland at ION2 (the mall’s outdoor space) was the 20m-tall Christmas tree adorned with more than 28,000 Swarovski crystals, providing a magical and glittering backdrop for many shoppers and tourists. The “Christmas Bedazzle”-themed decor nabbed the Judges’ Choice Award in the annual Orchard Road Business Association Best Dressed Building Contest.
