Timeless traditions, festive dining and a special charitable initiative create unforgettable memories for guests at The Peninsula Hong Kong
The Peninsula Hong Kong shares the festive spirit with guests and local residents during the holiday season with memorable Yuletide events that celebrate the joy of giving and raise funds for Make-A-Wish® Hong Kong. The Peninsula Hotels’ annual Trees of Hope fundraising campaign is now in its 14th year across all hotels and has raised more than US$ 1.5 million since its launch in Hong Kong in 2003.
TREES OF HOPE
For the 14th consecutive year, The Peninsula Hong Kong will participate in The Peninsula Hotels’ worldwide charity programme, Trees of Hope. Guests who stay in or visit the hotel will have the chance to purchase a SnowPage custom-crafted glass tree ornament, priced at HK$ 150 each, and a SnowPage plush toy, priced at HK$ 200, with the proceeds going directly to Make-A-Wish® Hong Kong’s programme, which makes dreams come true for children with life-threatening medical conditions.
Guests will also receive a SnowPage gingerbread cookie with every ornament purchased, and will have the option of hanging the ornament on the hotel’s Christmas trees as a symbol of hope, or taking it home as a souvenir. For every classic SnowPage plush toy and ornament sold, HK$ 100 will be donated to Make-A-Wish® Hong Kong.
The festive season is a time for good cheer and generosity, and both are in abundant supply this year at The Peninsula Hong Kong. To celebrate the spirit of giving this Christmas, the city’s timeless Grande Dame presents a series of programmes and special offers throughout the hotel that are sure to put guests in the holiday mood while helping create a brighter future for those who are less fortunate.
The Trees of Hope fundraising campaign will also extend to The Peninsula’s restaurants, which will offer special promotions that include donations to the charitable enterprise.
In the hotel’s legendary Lobby, the much-loved tradition of Afternoon Tea will be given a festive makeover as the “Teas of Hope” Classic Afternoon Tea. Available from 1 to 21 December and 27 to 30 December 2017, the set is priced at HK$ 368* per person and HK$ 658 for two, and includes an ornament. For each tea set sold, 20% will be donated to Make-A-Wish®.
