Dubai, UAE - Dukes Dubai, the 5-star family leisure hotel, hosted a Christmas tree lighting ceremony to support the humanitarian cause of the Emirates Red Crescent. Located on the west trunk of Palm Jumeirah, Dukes Dubai played host to children in need that are sponsored by the charity.
Tristan de la Porte du Theil, General Manager of Dukes Dubai said “I am excited to announce the launch of what we hope to be a long and successful collaboration with the Emirates Red Crescent, who impact the lives of so many underprivileged families. A key focus of Dukes Dubai is to give back to those in need as we celebrate the season of giving and we hope to expand our work together throughout 2019.”
The Red Crescent Movement is an international humanitarian movement with approximately 17 million volunteers, members and staff worldwide which was founded to protect human life and health, to ensure respect for all human beings and to prevent and alleviate human suffering.
The event, which took place on December 12th, saw 20 underprivileged children from the Emirates Red Crescent joined Dukes Dubai’s Chef Clive at the Dukesy Kids Club for an afternoon of Christmas cookie decorating followed by a visit from Santa Claus who led the Christmas tree lighting ceremony in the lobby of Dukes Dubai. Christian Potvin, Director of Rooms at Dukes Dubai said “Every opportunity to positively influence a child’s day, must be acted upon and celebrated. I consider myself very privileged to be afforded the opportunity to participate alongside Emirates Red Crescent, in such a giving event.”
