ABREEZA Mall rings in the season of gifts and giving with a flurry of festive events this November.

Ushering in the holiday glee is the annual Abreeza Christmas Launch on November 12, 5 p.m. at the Activity Center.

Dubbed as A Yuletide Musical Ride, the event will feature holiday harmonies by Acapellago, an award-winning Filipino contemporary a cappella group.

Acapellago has bagged honors both locally and internationally, being a two-time Grand Champion of Akapela Open in the Philippines, Grand Champion of the A Cappella Championships (International Category) in Singapore in 2015, Grand Champion of the Aka Acapella VIII in Singapore in 2016, and first runner-up of the Vocal Asia competitions in Taiwan in 2016.

As is tradition at Abreeza Mall, the Christmas tree will light up during the event. This time located at the glowing Christmas Village at the Ground Floor near Promod, the entire setup designed by T’nalak Home is bound to fill the hearts of passersby with the season’s warmth.

The Abreeza Christmas Launch will also encourage the spirit of giving by introducing the scholars of Hero (Help, Educate, and Rear Orphans) Foundation, Inc., a non-profit group that aims to benefit the children of Filipino soldiers killed in action.

A donation box for the Hero Foundation scholars will be at the Activity Center for kind-hearted patrons looking to donate, while corporations are also invited to support the group’s efforts.

Guests who make a minimum same-day purchase of P300 at any Abreeza Mall store get to go home with an early Christmas gift from Abreeza Mall when they pick a prize at the Yuletide Treats booth at the Activity Center after the Christmas Launch.

Right on the heels of the Christmas Launch is the mall-wide Pre-Christmas Sale which sees merchants offering up to 70 percent off on great finds.

Through this early Christmas blowout from November 13 to 19, shoppers get to stock up on gifts at a discount before the hectic December rush. On the culminating weekend of the Pre-Christmas Sale, November 17 to 19, Abreeza Mall gives shoppers more time to complete their Christmas lists with extended mall hours of up to 10pm.

For shoppers looking for one-of-a-kind presents, there’s no better place to go than the ARTbp. There is a pre-Christmas Arts and Craft Fair from November 10 to 12 at the Ground Floor Supermarket Hallway. Here, Davao’s young creative entrepreneurs present their gift-worthy products for purchase.

Another reason shoppers should make a beeline for Abreeza Mall while the Pre-Christmas Sale runs is the culmination of the 100 MORE Happy Shopping Days promo, which launched on July 3 and wraps up on November 17.

Customers who present a same-day single or accumulated receipt purchase of at least P500 from any Abreeza Mall store or Robinsons Department Store or P1,000 from Robinsons Supermarket at the Main Concierge get the chance to be among 100 winners of P10,000-worth shopping sprees. (NCB)
