L’ Fisher Hotel in Bacolod City hosted its much-anticipated annual event, the Tree of Hope Christmas Tree Lighting Ceremony and Dinner Buffet, on December 1.

The event, themed “Sparkling Hope: A Tree of Light for Smiles,” not only brought the joy of the holiday season to attendees, but was also aimed to spread hope through a night filled with entertainment and giving.

The distinguished guests in attendance included Delia Ciocon-Granada, CEO of L’ Fisher Hotel; Victor James Alcantara, Resident Manager of L’ Fisher Hotel; and Bacolod City councilors Pao Sy, Em Ang, and Thaddy Sayson.

Adding to the distinguished list of attendees was the esteemed chairperson of the HOPE Volunteers Foundation Inc., Edith Villanueva and Daday Melocoton, a member of the board of directors of the foundation.

The Tree of Hope Christmas Tree Lighting Ceremony and Dinner Buffet at L’ Fisher Hotel was an enchanting night of lights, music, and smiles, creating memories that will be cherished throughout the holiday season.*

This year’s beneficiary, the Hope Cleft Center, was announced during the event, symbolizing the hotel’s commitment to supporting causes that make a significant impact on the community. The acceptance speech was made by Melocoton.

The stage was graced with captivating performances by the children of Hope Cleft Center, showcasing their talents through solo singing, dance, and a vibrant group dance performance.

Adding a unique element to this year’s celebration was the introduction of the “Ball of Hope for a Smile,” where for just P200 per ornament, attendees had the opportunity to contribute to something truly special. These ornaments, more than decorations, symbolize hope, joy, and the spirit of giving back. Every peso from the sale of these ornaments will directly benefit the Hope Volunteers Foundation, supporting their unwavering efforts to make a positive impact on the lives of those in need.

The evening’s theme, “Sparkling Hope,” was reflected in the minimalist gold color motif, creating an atmosphere of elegance and warmth. The lobby was showered with confetti, symbolizing the joy and hope being shared with each festive burst.

Councilor Sy expressed her appreciation for the event, stating, “It’s heartwarming to see the community come together for such a noble cause. The Tree of Hope is not just a tree; it’s a beacon of light that reflects the generosity and compassion within our city.”*
