Why you should celebrate the holidays at Marco Polo Plaza Cebu

Sure, nothing beats opening gifts by our Christmas Tree, or grandma’s Christmas Lasagna. But sometimes when the usual tradition gets a little repetitive and the family getting smaller and smaller each year, as cousins and relatives move abroad, a change of scenery would be great to spice up the holidays. This holiday season we find our second home at Marco Polo Plaza Cebu as they open their doors (and most importantly, their kitchen) with gifts, treats and special promotions just in time to celebrate the festivities with the family.

 

The Tree of Hope

In Marco Polo Plaza, the lighting up of the Tree of Hope signifies the beginning of the Festive Season. But more than that, this Christmas tradition also signifies the beginning of the season for giving.

Donate to the Tree of Hope for only Php 200 per Christmas ball from November 20, 2016 to January 2, 2017. All proceeds will be given to GMA Kapuso Foundation – one of the most accomplished non-government organizations in the Philippines whose mission is to uplift the lives of underprivileged Filipinos.
