Metro Manila hotels usher in the Christmas season

Marriott Hotel Manila • November 5

MANILA, Philippines - Smiles, songs and a spread of feasts and treats were the highlights at the recently-held Christmas tree lighting at Marriott Hotel Manila last November 5. Glowing at 18 feet, the Christmas tree at Marriott easily complemented the hotel's wide lobby staircase. Guests gathered around it while director of marketing communications Michelle Garcia was on hand to welcome everyone.

This year’s celebration was made more meaningful by Marriott's partnership with Operation Smile. Together, they will provide free surgeries to children who have cleft lip, cleft palate, and other facial deformities.

To stress how Operation Smile has made a difference in the lives of the children, ChadleenLacdo-o, a former cleft palate patient who is now an accomplished singer, gave a rendition of “When You Believe”, which was inspiring from start to finish.
