On April 17, Kowloon Shangri-La, Hong Kong welcomed 40 students from the Yan Oi Tong Madam Lau Wong Fat Primary School, the hotel’s EMBRACE partner that teaches children from underprivileged backgrounds, for a fun Easter party. The children enjoyed a morning full of activities including egg painting, an egg hunt with special prizes, a themed buffet and more.

On April 20, Kowloon Shangri-La continued Easter celebrations with a Family Open Day for 150 colleagues and their families, and families from Beyond Children’s Special Needs Foundation, a nonprofit organization founded by actress Margaret Chung to help children with special needs.

“Everyone had a wonderful time at the party,” said Patsy Chan, director of public relations and partnerships at the hotel. “The families loved the lunch buffet, magic show, performances by young talent, and Easter egg painting session.”

The families painted 100 Easter eggs, which were packaged in baskets of chocolates and sweets and donated to children with mental disabilities at the Caritas Jockey Club Lok Yan School and children from low income families at Christian Action organization.
