Hilton Athens supports “Floga”
With the offer of a warm New Year’s celebration event to “Floga” (“Flame”), the Association of parents with children who have become sick with cancer the Hilton Athens announced the successful completion of its charity campaign for the support of children on the 29th of January 2012.
Generous hotel guests at the Hilton Athens have actively participated in the campaign for the third consecutive year by offering €1 through their account, in order to help the mission of “Floga”. “Small Change, Big Difference” is an initiative of Hilton in the Community Foundation, the charitable arm of the Hilton family of hotels, which was founded in 2000 in order to support children in need. The Foundation's core costs are funded by Hilton Hotels, so every net pound raised goes directly to good causes. The campaign ran simultaneously in 139 hotels in Europe, and each of them supported a local charity organization.
During the last three months of 2011, Hilton Athens raised a total of €2.004,42. The Communications Manager of the hotel, Mrs. Tina Toribaba, handed over the check to Mrs. Maria Trifonidou, President of “Floga”, during the event held at the balloon decorated Ballroom of the Hilton Athens in the honor of the Association’s children and their parents. Mrs. Trifonidou deeply thanked Hilton for supporting their effort to keep the “flame” of these children alive.
During the event, the children of “Floga” had the opportunity to dance with the music program of Best Music, to enjoy chocolates and pastries with the signature of Max Perry, to have fun with the kid’s entertainment program “Ta Delfinakia” and to taste the new Papadopoulos mini chocolate biscuits. Moreover, the lucky little winner of the traditional Greek “pitta cutting” got a total Hilton Athens experience for the whole family, including a room night in a luxurious suite, breakfast and lunch or dinner at the Byzantino Restaurant.
