On this season of gift-giving, Shangri-La The Fort is set to host an auction that aims to support children with cancer through the help of Kythe Foundation Inc

What better way to welcome the festive season than through an act of giving and sharing? This is exactly what Shangri-La The Fort, Manila has set out to do.

We have all been through trying times these past 20 months, it seemed that the most authentic way to spread joy is through spreading a feeling of hope and cheer. And so the idea of "An Artful Christmas" was born.

In an event hosted by Tatler Philippines, five unique nutcracker soldiers are brought to life by renowned creatives. They are four feet high and perfect for the home. Painted and decorated by generous people like Elena Coyiuto, Tracie Anglo Dizon, Rajo Laurel, Bea Valdes, and Tim Yap, these original statues will be auctioned off during an online event on Wednesday, December 1, 2021.

Christmas Nutcracker soldiers are decorative nutcracker statues, most commonly made to resemble a toy soldier. The Nutcracker soldier originates from the late-17th century period in Germany. It was said that in the German tradition, the dolls are symbols of good luck, frightening away malevolent spirits and protecting your home. 

In wanting to reach out and make a tangible difference as we usher in the holidays, the proceeds of the auction will be used to fund Noche Buena hampers which will be delivered by Shangri-La The Fort, Manila’s cheeky elves to the Kythe Foundation, Inc’s children.

Kythe Foundation, Inc is a non-profit, non-stock organisation aimed towards improving the quality of life of children undergoing treatment for cancer and other chronic illnesses. The foundation is dedicated to supporting over 18,000 children every year. Shangri-La The Fort, Manila now actively spreads a dash of Christmas cheer for some of these young people and their families this yuletide season.

So if you are looking for a fun way to bring more meaning to your holiday season this year, do join Tatler Philippines and Shangri-La The Fort, Manila by being part of the auction. It will not cost you much, just your time and if you are inclined, some funds to purchase one of the five Nutcracker soldiers.

Join us on Wednesday, December 1, 2022 at 6pm to 7pm on a private Zoom event (Meeting ID: 821 2552 0712 with Passcode: 523276) and really get into the spirit. You can call or message Nikki Martel (+63 908 816 0177) and say you want to join and we will happily send you the zoom link for "An Artful Christmas"!

Your presence will mean a lot! Not just to Tatler, the hotel, and the artists, but to the many kids and their families, who will have a joyful meal because of you.
