Park Inn welcomes the Yuletide Season-A A +A
Wednesday, December 4, 2013
PARK Inn by Radisson Davao welcomed the holiday season with a simple, but meaningful Christmas Tree Lighting Ceremony recently.
Elizabeth Sy, president of SM Hotels and Conventions Corp., graced the ceremony that was witnessed by hotel staff, in-house guests, and affiliates within the SM group of companies.
Paul Rene Lee, director and owners' representative for SM Hotels and Conventions Corp., opened the program with a short speech.
"Christmas couldn't have come at a more important time. It's a time of giving; A time to give back and be a blessing to others. Christmas reminds us about the significance of Life, and that we are all here for a purpose and for someone besides ourselves. May the Christmas tree we light be a symbol of hope to all, especially to those affected by Typhoon Yolanda," he said.
"We are proud to be part of the SM family, which continues to help survivors of the recent typhoon. Let us keep the true spirit of Christmas alive by sharing comfort, love and joy, in whatever we can, to those in need and despair. We wish you all a truly blessed, safe and memorable Christmas," he added.
Shortly after Sy pressed the switch, Christmas lights around the hotel turned on and the children from the Song Spell choir started to perform Christmas carols.
Their repertoire included Little Drummer Boy, Silent Night, Joy to the World, Gloria, and Mary's Boy Child.
