Wynn Spreads Love and Good Cheer for Christmas

Wynn Spreads Love and Good Cheer for Christmas
Celebrating the winter with blessings and warmth 
 
Macau, December 19, 2019 With Christmas just around the corner, Wynn recently hosted an array of festive activities with various social organizations to spread blessings to all levels of society, bringing love and care into the community. A highlight of previous years, Wynn invited The International School of Macau (TIS) Crescendo Choir to present the gift of music at the lobby of Wynn Macau. In addition, Wynn also joined hands with The Salvation Army (Macau) Learning Centre to organize 'Wynn Care – Christmas Carol Week', kicking off the event at Praça da Amizade. The Wynn Choir performed together with The Salvation Army (Macau) Learning Centre children's choir to present a range of classic Christmas songs and short yuletide dramas. The performance attracted residents and visitors alike to stop and appreciate the show. Around 80 WE (Wynn Employees) volunteers also conducted friendly visits and gave away Christmas gifts to spread warm blessings to the community.
 
The International School of Macau (TIS) Crescendo Choir performed a number of well-loved traditional Christmas hymns and carols for the local residents and tourists in the lobby of Wynn Macau, including Silent Night, Santa Claus is Coming to Town, and We Wish You a Merry Christmas. The Christmas music brought the festive spirit to every corner of the hotel. This year, the International School of Macau (TIS) Crescendo Choir included over 40 primary school students, aged between 5 and 12. After the performance, the group of students participated in a Christmas workshop. They decorated a one-meter tall Christmas tree with colorful Christmas decorations, allowing them to spread their holiday cheer to the community. At the event, Ms. Linda Chen, Vice Chairman and Executive Director of Wynn Macau, Limited and Doreen Stribbell, representative of The International School of Macau (TIS), presented Christmas trees handmade by The International School of Macau (TIS) Crescendo Choir to Grace Lam, Director of the Concordia School for Special Education, and Elsa Tsang, Senior Programme Officer of The Salvation Army Educational Services Department.
 
In addition, the WE Volunteer Team prepared 300 Christmas gifts that were packaged by members of the Fuhong Society of Macau, as well as handmade scarfs knitted by Wynn team members, for The Salvation Army (Macau) Learning Centre, with the gifts being received by Elsa Tsang. The WE Volunteer Team then joined hands with The Salvation Army (Macau) Learning Centre to visit over 200 local elderly people at the S. Francis Xavier Home for the Aged and the Asilo de Santa Maria. The volunteers presented the gifts to the elderly people in the hope of sharing love and cares to every corner of the society.
