TO OFFICIALLY kick off the holiday festivities in the city, the Waterfront Cebu City Hotel and Casino held its annual Christmas tree lighting ceremony on Nov. 5, 2020 at the hotel’s grand lobby.

The lighting of the captivating display was headed by Waterfront Cebu general manager Anders Hallden, Cebu Gov. Gwendolyn Garcia, Cebu City Vice Mayor Michael Rama, Department of Tourism 7 Regional Director Shahlimar Hofer Tamano and renowned businessman Michel Lhuillier.

True to the theme “Waterfront Light of Hope: The Season of Giving,” Waterfront Cebu, together with its sister companies Waterfront Mactan and Waterfront Davao, also launched its corporate-wide Christmas project that aims to gather funds to provide a special Christmas feast to families in need and to the heroic frontliners who have been working tirelessly this year due to the Covid-19 pandemic.

These boxes will be personally delivered by hotel staff on Dec. 23 and 25.

The program includes activities such as Ornaments of Hope, Waterfront Care Bears for a Cause, Light of Hope Donation Boxes, and the Christmas Wishing Well. All donations will go to the funding of the Christmas in a Box. This project will run until Dec. 24.
