Holidays at Ascott & Gawad Kalinga

Ascott Bonifacio Global City Manila recently had its annual tree lighting ceremony and also celebrated its 5th anniversary. Holidays at Ascott is the time when they officially lit the cluster Christmas tree with its beneficiary Gawad Kalinga. 
The ground floor of Ascott BGC had the beautiful tree and Santa's factory. An area where guests can take a seat for a photo and also make use of the props there for a more epic shot. During the event, kids from Gawad Kalinga serenaded the guests with holiday cheers and filled the place with wonderful music and bright smiles. 

Scott's restaurant on the second floor was where the guests took a bite of some of the restaurant's holiday food choices. People dressed up in their holiday outfits and carolers singing Christmas songs created a jolly holiday vibe.

During the event, Ascott shared more about their advocacy partnership with Gawad Kalinga. #SeasonOfCaring is definitely here and as a way to spread the word on helping others in need especially this season, Ascott made it possible for hotel guests & customers to help out the less privileged by purchasing a paper ornament and make a difference on the lives of kids. Each donation of P 100 will provide 6 nutritious meals to children in public schools, streets and conflict areas. This is one way of the Ascott group to bring back to the community and also be a vehicle so that other people can also share their blessings and help out the kids. All they have to donate is to write their name and pledge on the paper ornament. Guests can as the Guest Service for more details.

Ascott also awarded a check amounting to around P 850,000 to Gawad Kalinga to help with their cause.

As part of Ascott's sustainable drive on reducing single-use plastics, they made use of old plastic bottles and turned it into a work of art that represents the holidays! I didn't notice at first but it's pretty creative how the team makes it look classy. Here, take a good look at it. 

So congratulations to Ascott for the wonderful and meaningful Christmas Tree lighting, happy anniversary on the 5th year! We expect nothing but amazing things from you that makes the world a better place. So cheers to brands and other company who makes holidays more meaningful for others! Hunger ends where caring begins! 
Water, Rose, Red Wine and Flat Wine. Yes, I'm drinking them altogether. Ha ha!
