Seda Abreeza’s Christmas Tree Lighting Ceremony this holiday season aims to #LightUpTheWorld as Davao’s urban lifestyle hotel welcomed the Yuletide season with a very meaningful Christmas Tree Lighting as it makes a significant partnership with Smile Train and HERO Foundation.
This 2017 yuletide season, Seda Abreeza brings in a more significant and relevant celebration of the holiday season by having two Corporate Social Responsibility partners. Highly respected executives of the ANFLO Group, the Consul Generals of Japan and Indonesia based in Davao City, the Department of Tourism, City Tourism Office, City Council, Davao Chamber of Commerce, friends from the media and Davao Digital Influencers, as well as top business partners in the industry, the recent Christmas Tree Lighting Ceremony intends to share the bright and prosperous season through lights – the hotel’s chosen symbol.

Seda Hotel Manager Mr. Ken Kapulong further elaborates this concept saying…
“The hotel’s decorations and accents are highlighted by symbols of light – candles, lamps, Christmas lights – to signify hope, faith, and peace. A simple message to everyone that if we ought to unite and share all good things, we will be each other’s light and get through anything – even the hardest battles. As we partner with HERO Foundation and Smile Train, we hope to be the light they need and share this endeavor with everyone.”
Seda Abreeza will give focus to these two charities this season, as they have been dearly loved and supported through the years by the Seda Hotels.
Smile Train is an international children’s charity with a sustainable approach to a single, solvable problem: cleft lip and palate. Children born with clefts need more than just surgery. They may also need dental care, orthodontic treatment, and speech therapy. Where these services are available, they do everything they can to make them available to their patients. Guests and partners who wish to help Smile Train may buy our Christmas Tree ornaments for sale (Php100-300). All proceeds will go to the said charity.
Help Educate and Rear Orphans (HERO) Foundation is an organization that aims to give assistance to the children of our fallen and incapacitated soldiers. The support come in the form of stipends that are directly given to the families to help them with the cost of books, uniform, meals, transportation, school supplies and sometimes, even their tuition fees. To give our highest salute and gratefulness to our real-life heroes, part of the revenues for December and January shall be donated to HERO Foundation.
The partnership was sealed and made official through a ceremonial gift giving with Smile Train and HERO Foundation representatives, patients, and scholars.
The ceremonial lighting was initiated by Damosa Land VP Cary Lagdameo, Councilor Bernie Al-ag, CTOO Generose Tecson, Japanese Consul Tomoko Dodo, Indonesian Consul General Berlian Napitupulu, Seda Abreeza’s HM Ken Kapulong, Smile Train’s Country Manager Kimmy Coseteng-Flaviano, and HERO Foundation’s Executive Director MGen. Victor Bayani.
The tree lighting was followed by a Christmas musical show from Muzicskool’s GAP 69, and a Yuletide food showcase by Seda Abreeza’s culinary team served for cocktails.

May you have the best Christmas feeling ever and may your holidays be bright as we light up the world with good deeds this season of giving!
