PENANG, DECEMBER 2011 – Ushering a magical Christmas was a magnificent delight as Berjaya Penang Hotel invited 55 children and disabled folks to join in the act of igniting hope, love and joy to the world. Light-Up The Christmas Tree Charity Event was held in support of sharing the celebration with one another. Held on 15 December 2011, from 7.00om – 9.30pm, children who attended the event that evening were from the Salvation Army and Penang's Crystal Family Home.

Salvation Army provides residential care for neglected children and the disabled whereas Crystal Family Home cares for abused, neglected, orphaned, troubled, or poor children from dysfunctional families.

The event which was held at the hotel lobby was officiated by YB Phee Boon Poh (State Exco member for Health, Welfare, Caring Society and Environment), who was present throughout the occasion. The children and folks were all warmly welcomed and entertained by staff of the hotel, getting to know one another and exchanging stories.

The highlight of the event was when the children received a variety of Christmas presents from Berjaya Penang Hotel's General Manager, Cheah Hooi Theng and YB Phee Boon Poh. Brightly lit faces plastered with big smiles were everywhere as these children clasp on to their lovely presents. It was a joyful setting as carolers from Penang Cheshire Hole and the hotel's band, Back Again performed benevolently on the night.

“During this season of sharing and caring, we at Berjaya Penang Hotel would like to do as much as possible for the needy in giving them an opportunity to celebrate Christmas like everyone else”, said the very pleased Cheah.

The kids and adults were served with tantalizing Christmas Buffet Dinner that evening. Everyone enjoyed the merry occasion at Berjaya Penang Hotel.
