Hilton and St. Rita Church join hands to spread joy among children and elderly
Set in a winter night of twinkling lights and end-of-year festive celebrations, this year Hilton Beirut Habtoor Grand & Hilton Beirut Metropolitan Palace joined hands with St. Rita Church and flung their doors open to children and elderly to enjoy the joyous Christmas season. This initiative comes in line with Hilton’s CSR approach where the team celebrated togetherness with elderly and kids bringing the best feelings and meanings to the hearts of underprivileged families.
The Hilton Christmas fiesta adventure began with welcoming around 250 kids chosen by St. Rita church and accompanied with the parish priest Fr. Jean Pierre, to relish a special dinner at Exchange restaurant Hilton Beirut Habtoor Grand. The event featured a set of surprises, tasty bites, gifts, and a visit by Santa Clause, filling the children’s hearts with seasonal cheer. The memorable festivities continued with a delicious lunch for the elderly supported by St. Rita Church at Summer Place Restaurant at Metropolitan Palace Hotel to rejoice into the spirit of the most wonderful time of the year. The spectacular celebrations ended with a lovely dinner for Hilton team members and their kids at Exchange restaurant. During the activities, community spirit was out in full-force giving the invitees an experience that will be remembered for many years to come.
“For an occasion worthy of sensational celebration, it’s a real pleasure to welcome family and friends, bringing party favors and festive joy for guests,” said Mr. Naif Zureikat, Cluster Manager of Hilton Hotels in Beirut. “In the spirit of the holiday season, we truly believe that donations and generosity are one way to ensure that goodwill prevails. It is a blessed season to ramp up the excitement, warmth, and joy into the hearts of everyone,” he added.
These yearly events reflect Hilton’s global corporate responsibility, and commitment towards the community, which engage all team members to focus on creating shared value and have more impact on society and helping those in need.
