Sands Celebrates Success With the Local Community
To mark the milestone of Sands Cotai Central’s opening in 2012, Sands China Ltd. created an anniversary celebration that not only delighted guests and patrons, it extended special benefits and engaged a number of local community organizations. A highlight of the anniversary celebration was a carnival at the property’s Paradise Gardens, in which 50 Sands China Care Ambassadors hosted 50 members of the Macao Special Olympics (MSO) to participate in activities such as balloon twisting, caricature sketching, magic shows, face painting, and more. Carnival activities were also open to the public for a donation to MSO. The Ambassadors kicked off the day by hosting MSO families at Po’s Kung Fu Feast for an interactive, themed character breakfast featuring stage performances as part of the DreamWorks Experience at Sands Resorts Cotai Strip Macao.
Sands China also engaged the community in the anniversary celebration by giving out 120 tickets to local medical organizations for the Monkey King – China Show at the Sands Cotai Theatre. Tickets to the large-scale fantasy stage play were given to the Macau Dental Association, Pak Leng Medical and Rehabilitation Centre, Macau Physical Therapists Association, and Widex Macau Hearing and Speech Centre.
Sharing Sands Cotai Central’s anniversary celebration with local community groups is central to Sands China’s commitment to support social causes and engage with organizations who are making the community a better place to live. Since 2009, Sands China Ltd. has been organizing community activities for children throughout the year to provide fun and excitement and the opportunity to create joyful interactions between parents and children to help foster healthy and close-knit family relationships.
The Sands China Care Ambassador program aims to give Sands China employees an opportunity to serve the local community by organizing community activities and initiatives that work toward creating a better Macao. With a current membership of more than 1,500 volunteers from across all Sands China properties, Sands China Care Ambassadors have contributed more than 10,000 hours of community service in more than 100 activities since the program was founded in 2009.
