Last Wednesday, December 7, 2011, Movenpick Cebu celebrated their first Christmas Tree Lighting with a fairies, magic and a glimpse of fairyland.
While waiting for the program to begin, goblets of Gluhwein and Eggnog were offered by Santarinas to the guests and a holiday spread of turkeys, glazed ham and the famous Movenpick ice cream were served.
The Christmas Tree Lighting began when Movenpick Resort & Spa Cebu General Manager Klaus Graesslin handed a gold box to former DOT Regional Director Dawnie Roa. When she opened the box, a whimsical tune filled the atmosphere and a gold fairy descends gracefully from the air, waves the gold and silver-tipped wand to the tree..and ta-dah! Lights on.
Most people lit their Christmas trees by pushing a button. Movenpick Resort & Spa Cebu, on the other hand, have different ideas. True to their slogan “Passionately Swiss”, they’re passionate in captivating the audience with their unique idea of a Christmas tree lighting. No celebrities were involved, only dedicated people working behind the scenes and doing the stunts.
This year, Movenpick Resort & Spa Cebu picked the Kapwa Ko, Mahal Ko Foundation as their beneficiary for the Charity Tree. Guests are encouraged to purchase Christmas tree ornaments and hang it on the tree. The Charity Tree will be on display for the whole month of December. All proceeds will benefit the Kapwa Ko, Mahal Ko kids. ‘Tis the season of giving, make a child smile this Christmas. For inquiries, please call (032) 492 7777.
