On Sunday, December 20, Hilton Prague and Hilton Prague Old Town took pleasure in organising the annual Christmas Charity Concert for the hotel clients and business partners, which has been a Christmas highlight for 19 years in a row. Michael Specking, cluster general manager of both Hilton Hotels in Prague, was delighted to hand over a cheque in the value of 50,000 Czech Crowns to Tereza Maxová Dětem Foundation, who work to help children in need.
Bohuslav Martinu Philharmonic Orchestra Zlin headed by the Indian conductor Mr. Debashish Chaudhuri, featuring a guest soloist Eva Blažková , brought the festive spirit to life.
As every year, the International ladies choir Viva Voce conducted by Soňa Frýdlová delighted the audience by traditional Christmas carols. Michael Specking, cluster general manager of Hilton Prague and Hilton Prague Old Town together with Gabriela Kratochvílová, TV presenter and Czech Miss 2013, moderated the evening. A fun part was not missing either, when Michael Specking, Gabriela Kratochvílová and Hilton Prague Executive Chef performed the famous Plink Plank Plunk By Leroy Anderson using kitchen utensils.
The Tereza Maxová Dětem Foundation has been benefiting from proceeds raised through charity campaigns at Hilton Hotels in Prague already for a few years. This time, the total amount collected reached 50,000 Czech Crowns. A charity cheque was handed over to the director of the Foundation, Terezie Sverdlinová.
After the concert, guests enjoyed delicious Christmas buffet under the stars in the hotel Lobby accompanied by piano music.
