KUALA LUMPUR, Malaysia -  Upon the light up of the Christmas tree event which was held in December 2009, the hotel presented a cheque worth RM11,323 to The National Autism Society of Malaysia (NASOM). For the fun and meaningful cause, the hotel team spent two weeks selling movie tickets and encouraging donations from the public and corporate companies.

At the Christmas tree Light Up event, joyful Christmas carolers entertained guests with hymns of the yuletide season. Attended by in-room guests and diners from the outlets, the event ended with a special appearance by Santa Claus and santarina giving out Christmas gifts. The autistic kids were later treated to a sumptuous dinner prepared by the hotel’s culinary team.

“Christmas is the time of sharing and giving. As a corporate organization, we celebrate this special moment by spreading the joy and laughter to the less fortunate every year as giving back to the community is an integral part of what we at Hilton Kuala Lumpur strongly believe in,” said Ms Sally Yap, Director of Marketing Communications of the hotel.
