We celebrate Christmas to remember the birth of Jesus Christ. It marks the beginning of the most wonderful time of the year.
That is why on November 13, Wednesday, Waterfront Insular Hotel Davao ushered in the festive season and made all things ‘Bold and Bright’ for the holidays.
At exactly 5 p.m. , a special program started at the lobby where the 15-foot Christmas tree can be found as it shone brightly with over 50 Moroccan lamps and matching attractive ornaments all over its pine boughs.
There were 70 invitees composed of loyal patrons and media friends to witness the ceremonial tree lighting with the angelic voices of the singing group named “Voices of the South”.
The launch highlighted a curtain reveal of the tree and celebratory toast led by the Hotel Manager Bryan Yves Lasala, Sales and Marketing Manager Jennifer Romero and Waterfront Hotels and Casinos’ Group Marketing Communications Manager Rossana Unson, the hotel’s Department Heads and Sales and Marketing together with their guests of honor: Hon. Ralph Abella, City Councilor; Ms. Regina Rosa Tecson, Officer-in-Charge of the City Tourism Operations Office; and Ms. Elinor Marcelino, President of the Davao Events Suppliers Association.
Chef Anthony “Nino” Ante’s prepared sweet and luscious cocktails and desserts for the guests to indulge and enjoy while conversing with friends at the Vinta Bar and Vinta Bar Patio.
Hotel Manager Bryan Yves Lasala said , “Christmas is a time of year that brims with anticipation and excitement and each year, we try to do it differently. Taking inspiration from our Annual Appreciation Party held in August, this evening we welcome the season with bold and bright colors to bring out the warmth and wonder of the holidays.
Waterfront Insular Hotel is not only after celebrating Christmas but also giving importance to those children with cancer. Its partnership with the House of Hope Foundation for 12 heartwarming years had given continuous support to these children. On the 26th of November, they will have a fundraising gala entitled,” HOPE: The heart of Christmas.” This can help raise funds for their daily treatment that will give joy and hope in their lives.
