Following last year’s successful winter charity event, Swissotel Krasnye Holmy, together with the Russian Committee of SOS Children’s Villages, decided to keep a good tradition going and organize a celebration this season. On the evening of December 7, the lobby of Swissotel Krasnye Holmy was full. Two families from SOS Children’s villages, Tomilino and Kandalaksha, arrived in Moscow specially to participate in the celebration. The children were very proud to recite poems and to sing songs in front of the guests. The family from Tomilino performed a series of very touching violin and flute pieces. Later in the evening the children, together with the General Manager of Swissotel Krasnye Holmy, Jan Chovanec, Grandfather Frost and Snow Maiden lit the Christmas trees in the lobby. The highlight of the evening was a Christmas Bazaar. All the guests at the event had an opportunity to play Grandfather Frost for the children. All the money raised during the Christmas Bazaar will be used to buy presents for SOS children.
