SM City Cebu will open its Christmas Village of Hope to the public on November 11 at The Northwing Atrium.
Aside from being an enchanting prime attraction of the mall in preparation for the upcoming Christmas season, it also signifies the bountiful blessings and atmosphere of the season. The village’s unveiling will be done together with the ceremonial lighting of the Christmas Tree at around 6 p.m
The Christmas Village of Hope, as designed by couple Clayton and Joji Tugonon, features 700 miniature houses, five moving trains, moving figurines, Christmas Mickey Mouse train, Disney’s Mickey and Minnie Mouse, and many more. These are all part of the couple’s massive Christmas décor collection, which they started in 1993.
This was last year’s display at SM City Cebu, as featured on GMA’s “Kapuso Mo, Jessica Soho.”
The Christmas Village of Hope is an annual charitable project for the children with cancer under the care of Kythe Foundation Inc. Donations are very well welcomed from donors who may visit the Northwing Atrium starting the 12th of November. They may choose a “Christmas House” that they want to sponsor or adopt. They can also opt for the figures for adoption that range from P5, 000 to P30,000. The funds gained from this project will pay for the laboratory works, other medical treatment procedures, medicines, and parties and events hosted by Kythe.
Give love this Christmas by visiting SM’s Village of Hope and get the chance to start the season with lots of photos during the ceremonial Christmas tree lightning. Donate and have fun at the same time this weekend!
