The holiday spirit has swept through Crowne Plaza Manila Galleria and Holiday Inn Manila Galleria as they kick off the festive season with a heartwarming ‘We Gift Back’ event. Celebrating the spirit of giving, the two iconic IHG hotels in Ortigas recently hosted an evening filled with gestures of gratitude.
During the event, General Manager Patria Puyat expressed her heartfelt appreciation to their valued guests, hardworking colleagues, and supportive partners who have significantly contributed to the hotels’ successful 20 years for Holiday Inn Manila Galleria and 18 years for Crowne Plaza Manila Galleria.
As a way of paying it forward, the hotels shone a spotlight on the children of the Children’s Joy Foundation (CJFI), an organization devoted to caring for disadvantaged, neglected, and underprivileged Filipino children. “We aim to bridge the gap between these children and the world they will inherit, ensuring a successful future through our collective efforts,” remarked Puyat. The children were not only recipients of donations but also showcased their talents with song and dance performances accompanied by musical instruments.
Returning to her homeland after nearly two decades following assignments in Dubai and Laos, General Manager Patria Puyat expressed the significance of celebrating Christmas in the Philippines. “The celebration becomes more meaningful here, at home, where the holiday season commences as early as September. And we are all excited to celebrate it with you,” added Puyat.
The evening culminated in the illumination of a grand 20-foot Christmas tree, led by Lance Gokongwei, President, and CEO of JG Summit, Inc. Adding to the festive mood, Santa Claus made a special appearance, delighting attendees with gift box-shaped treats.
