Around 2000 eggs were hand-designed by Marco Polo Davao associates and their family to mark the Easter celebration!
Marco Polo Davao opens the Easter season with the Paskris Tree Ceremony at the hotel lobby together with the Marco Polo Davao heads of department and its associates on April 7, 2017.
“Paskris Tree is the Swedish term for Easter tree where in the bedazzled twigs represent the palm leaves that were placed on the ground for Jesus’ donkey to walk on in his triumphant return to Jerusalem. Palm trees are not native to Sweden, so this was the best they could do to imitate their more equatorial neighbors”, explains General Manager Dottie Wurgler-Cronin during the ceremony. “We encouraged everyone in our team to take part in this artful charitable event as part of our commitment to give back to our local community”, GM Dottie adds.
The intimate ceremony included the hanging of eggs by the MPD Associates as well as member of the media. Each egg represents a cash donation which will be given to the Missionaries of Charity.
The hotel will hold an Egg-citing Easter Party at the Marco Polo Ballroom on April 16, 2017 from 9:00AM to 2:00PM. Tickets are available at Php600 nett with plated snacks, party admission and freebies.
Families can also stay for a city resort family staycation with the hotel’s special Egg-citing room promotion with buffet breakfast and special amenity for the kids. Rate starts at Php4000 for an overnight stay.
