Dusit Thani welcomes the holidays with a display of eight dazzling Christmas trees developed by invited educational institutions, represented by their grade school students, for the hotel’s third annual Christmas Tree Contest.
With the theme “A Hundred Voices, Ten Hopes, One Christmas Story”, the project highlighted the talent, creativity and resourcefulness of youngsters from De La Salle Zobel, Everest Academy Manila, German European School Manila, Mahatma Gandhi International School, MGC New Life Christian Academy, Miriam College Grade School, Paref Southridge, Singapore School Manila and Divine Healer Academy from Cabid-an, Sorsogon. Each Christmas tree modeled from recycled materials into things of beauty was also built in behalf of the participating schools’ chosen beneficiaries.
For this event, Dusit Thani Manila partnered with ESQUIRE Financing Inc., a financing institution that specializes in SME financing. “We believe in financing the future of the Philippines. One of the pillars of development is education, so we are committed to supporting foundations or projects that work with street children and alleviate poverty,” says President & CEO Rajan Uttamchandani. In keeping with this, ESQUIRE will be donating Php 200,000.00 to the winning tree’s charity.
