ZURICH - Hilton Zurich Airport hosted its wonderful Charity Gala on 8 October 2011 on the occasion of the 40th anniversary of the Hotel and the 10th anniversary of the hotel’s cooperation with FIS (International Ski Federation) FIS, and the charity partner Right to Play cordially thanked the 170 guests for having made this charity gala such an unforgettable event. Hilton Zurich Airport is proud to have been able to donate CHF 84’500 for the Hilton in the Community Foundation and the charity partner Right to Play. The overall target for charity was exceeded by far and Hilton Zurich Airport is happy to support many vulnerable young people all over the world. The slogan of Right to Play is: “When children play, the world wins.”

Special thanks also go to the suppliers of Hilton Zurich Airport who have contributed by donating some of the food and beverage products and of course to the dedicated Hilton team which has worked on a voluntary basis on that evening. As a special teamwork it should be noted that some team members of the Hilton Nuremberg joined the workforce on that special event to give them all some additional hands to help.

Highlights of the evening were the delicious dinner menu, an excellent huge dessert buffet, a gorgeous tombola and a great auction with wonderful items such as a ski weekend with Bernhard Russi.
