Hilton Hanoi Opera Hotel lights up lives through charity Christmas Tree

Added: (Tue Dec 16 2008)

Pressbox (Press Release) - Hilton Hanoi Opera today kicked off the festive season by turning on the lights to its charity Christmas Tree, which aims to raised much needed funds for ‘The Challenge Campaign for Children’s Heart Foundation.

The 5.5m X foot tree, a focal point in Hanoi each Christmas, is decorated with 224 Christmas Bears which can be purchased by the public, with the proceeds going directly to the children’s charity. Vina Capital Fund for Healthy Hearts has also pledged to match the proceeds raised dollar for dollar.

Mark Deere, Hilton Hanoi Opera’s General Manager, said the initiative is well received by the public.

“It is the season for giving and enjoying time with friends and family. At Hilton Hanoi Opera we want people to celebrate this time while also remembering and supporting those who are less fortunate than ourselves or are facing tough challenges in the coming year.”

Hilton Hanoi Opera is also opening its doors on the 10th of December to help young children discover the magic of Christmas in Hanoi’s leading hotel. Children from several local schools are invited to help Hilton Hanoi Opera’s chef prepare Christmas cookies and spreads, decorate a traditional Christmas dinner table and bake their own Christmas treats for underprivileged children. They will also get an opportunity to witness the 5-star standard of the hotel in action.

Over the next few weeks, Hilton Hanoi Opera has a number of festive delights for locals and tourists to really embrace the holiday period.
