Sirenis Hotels & Resorts, together with its vacation club brand, Sirenis Premium Travelers Club, celebrated the 2013 holiday season by hosting three major charity events in Riviera Maya and Punta Cana. These locations are the home of their two major resorts, Grand Sirenis Riviera Maya and Sirenis Resort Punta Cana. The goal of all three unique events was to give underprivileged children in these communities a magical holiday season.
The resort company kicked off the holiday season in Punta Cana, Dominican Republic with their unqiue “Breakfast with Santa” event. The event was held at the resort, and hosted 135 children, 35 teachers and volunteer parents from La Ceiba public school. The guests of honor enjoyed a resort day pass that included a delicious breakfast buffet, an individual picture with Santa, a special gift (from Santa), and a day in the beautiful Sirenis Aquagames Water Park.
Sirenis executives did a magnificent job organizing the event--every detail was contemplated in order to assure a fun and safe day for the children.
“The event was an amazing experience! I think we enjoyed it as much as the children! To see the children’s faces gleam with joy when they saw Santa arrive--that was priceless,” said Lucero Lagarde, Sirenis Premium Travelers Operations Manager.
A special thank you to the outsource sponsors for making this event an unforgettable experience for the children at La Ceiba school: Australian Gold, Personal Hotelero y Turístico Bule, S.R.L, Diviu Imagen.
“I was amazed to hear several of the children say, 'Sirenis is incredible! I had never had a day so wonderful and special in my whole life,'” said Delmi Mercedes, the school principal.
Resort General Manager Luis González expressed, “It was a great pleasure to welcome the students from La Ceiba school in our water park Sirenis Aquagames. It shows our commitment and interest in this wonderful community that has been so welcoming to us.”
The second charity event of the season was the Toy Drive in Punta Cana. In honor of the “3 Wise Men” celebration held on January 6th, the co-workers of Sirenis Premium Travelers and Sirenis Resort Punta Cana Casino & Aquagames donated toys to the orphan children from the Fundación Hogar Un Mundo Mejor para la Niñez Desamparada orphanage in Higüey.
During the month of December employees had the opportunity to purchase toys and bring them to work to donate to the drive. The morning of January 6th, an employee committee brought all of the toys, which included numerous bicycles and tricycles, to the orphanage.
Upon their arrival at the orphanage the executives were surprised by the wonderful greeting they received: the children were singing Christmas carols. The children were delighted to receive such nice toys and the executives where as delighted as them for being able to give these children a great moment of joy.
The final holiday event was held at Grand Sirenis Riviera Maya Resort & Spa and like the other events, created a magical day for some local children. The event brought first-graders from the Akumal public school to the resort to enjoy a private breakfast with the “3 Wise Men.” Each child received a gift and an individual picture with the 3 Wise Men. Entertainment was provided by the hotel’s activities department staff.
Sirenis Hotels & Resorts and its private membership club, Sirenis Premium Travelers Club, are committed to being positive corporate citizens and supporting local communities, especially local children.
“The impact that these events had for these children cannot be understated,” said Grace Sepulveda, Sirenis Premium Travelers Director. “The children’s faces said it all. But it is possible our employees and executives had even more fun making these events special for the children.”
