Dukes Dubai re­cently hosted a

Christ­mas tree light­ing cer­e­mony for chil­dren sup­ported by Emi­rates Red


The event, which took place on

De­cem­ber 12, was at­tended by 20 un­der­priv­i­leged chil­dren from the Emi­rates Red Cres­cent.

The chil­dren joined Clive Pereira, head chef of Duke’s West 14th Steak­house, at the ho­tel’s Dukesy Kids Club for an af­ter­noon of Christ­mas cookie dec­o­rat­ing. This was fol­lowed by a visit from Santa, who led the Christ­mas tree light­ing cer­e­mony in the lobby.

Tris­tan de la Porte du Theil, gen­eral man­ager, Dukes Dubai, said, “I am ex­cited to an­nounce the launch of what we hope to be a long and suc­cess­ful col­lab­o­ra­tion with the Emi­rates Red Cres­cent. A key fo­cus of Dukes Dubai is to give back to those in need as we cel­e­brate the sea­son of giv­ing and we hope to ex­pand our work to­gether in 2019.”

Chris­tian Potvin, di­rec­tor of rooms at Dukes Dubai said, “Every op­por­tu­nity to pos­i­tively in­flu­ence a child’s day, must be acted upon and cel­e­brated. I con­sider my­self very priv­i­leged to be af­forded the op­por­tu­nity to par­tic­i­pate along­side Emi­rates Red Cres­cent, in such a giv­ing event.”
