WATERFRONT LIGHTS UP A MODERN HOLIDAY
The Waterfront Insular Hotel Davao launched its Christmas festivities with a playful inspiration of geometrics and greens.
The Waterfront Insular Hotel Davao officially welcomed the Christmas season on November 15, Thursday, with a playful inspiration of geometrics and greens and lit up for ‘A Modern Holiday'.
A timeless tradition at Waterfront, it's a season where ideas are coming to life to bring the blissful holidays to the House of Hope Foundation and their beneficiaries, the Kids of Hope.
“It gives us great pleasure to be able to weave wonderful memories for these children with every theme and every element of surprise,” Hotel Manager, Bryan Yves Lasala said in his welcome address. This year, the longtime partnership turns a decade and one.
The celebration started with the unveiling of the marvelous Christmas tree.
After the lobby ceremony, guests, partners and 45 beneficiaries of the foundation were led to a joyful holiday experience at the Grand Agila Ballroom. Among the highlights of the event were harmonious performances of the Himig Singers of Davao, theatrical repertoire of Songspell Philippines, a musical production by Siningtala, a pledge for hope and finally a thanksgiving from the Kids of Hope themselves as they sang a piece titled ‘Salamat'.
The kids also enjoyed a playhouse, arts and crafts by the Little Barangay Mobile Party Playpen Davao, mascot appearances, giveaways from Zonta Club and the Rotary Club of Davao, holiday gifts from Waterfront Insular Hotel Davao and some treats from Santa Claus.
In true essence of Christmas and in efforts to share the holiday spirit to their beneficiaries, the hotel invites guests to make room for a cause and help raise funds for the children's treatment. Part of the proceeds from Suite room stays lasting the whole month of December will benefit the foundation./
