Sheraton Saigon Hotel & Towers in cooperation with Renaissance Riverside Hotel Saigon and Le Méridien Saigon held a Christmas Tree Lighting ceremony last Friday to kick off the most exciting season of the year.

The annual Christmas tree lighting ceremony not only starts the festive season with warm lighting, but gives thanks to those who have supported the hotel and have spent many days and nights with them over the year, according to a representative of Sheraton Saigon Hotel & Towers.

To officially kick off the season, the Christmas choir, composed of Sheraton Saigon’s talented associates, sang as they lit up the Christmas tree in the hotel lobby.

The lobby was transformed into a mesmerizing “Winter Wonderland” filled with glittering lights, pink and silver seasonal decorations, a magnificent Christmas tree, and a life-sized gingerbread house prepared by the hotel team.

On the occasion, 80 children and 10 teachers from Tam Bình Orphanage Centre were invited to enjoy the event, which featured a range of exciting activities, fun games and a fabulous dinner buffet with mouthwatering dishes specially prepared and served by associates from Sheraton Saigon Hotel & Towers, Renaissance Riverside Hotel Saigon, and Le Méridien Saigon.

The hotels are calling for donations of gifts to the charity programme called “Wish Upon A Star”, which invites children from Tam Bình Orphanage Centre to write their gift wishes on stars that will be spread across the three properties as well as hung on the hotels' Christmas trees.

Starting from now until December 16, the meaningful gifts donated by hotel guests and associates will be collected at each hotel and delivered to the Bình Chánh Development Support Centre for Integrated Education and Centre for Disabled Children Education District 4 on December 19-20.

The Christmas Tree Lighting and Christmas Charity events are the hotel’s annual activities to give thanks back to the local community where the hotels operate. “We hope that together we can bring the most memorable and meaningful festive experience to kids, as life is better when shared,” a representative of Sheraton Saigon Hotel & Towers said. — VNS
