Silver hues at New World Makati

Silver hues at New World Makati

MANILA, Philippines — As New World Makati Hotel celebrates its 25th anniversary, Makati Mayor Abby Binay led the tree lighting ceremony with hotel executives general manager Marcel van Mierlo and director of Sales & Marketing Jann Delgado, and television personality Pia Guanio-Mago, with her husband Steeve and daughters Scarlet and Brooklyn.

The 25-ft Christmas tree was adorned in stunning silver and white holiday ornaments to highlight its milestone year. The audience was serenaded by the hotel’s beneficiary SOLV Foundation Children’s choir who sang a medley of classic Christmas carols.

Male classical and pop group Opus One came down the lobby’s staircase singing “It’s The Most Wonderful Time of The Year.” 

The SOLV Foundation Children’s Choir were handed sweet Christmas Santa treats as a token of appreciation for their endearing performance. A party at the hotel will be held later in December for all 45 children as well as volunteers at SOLV Foundation. A portion of the hotel’s proceeds for the month will be donated to their foundation, a non-profit organization that cares for street children in Barangay Palanan in Makati, providing them with a home and quality education.

To help raise more donations for the SOLV Foundation and in celebration of its silver year, New World Makati Hotel is holding the Holly Jolly Raffle, giving away 25 exciting experiences and prizes. Promo runs until Dec. 31. A minimum spend of P5,000 entitles the guest to one raffle ticket.
