THE WESTIN EASTER BUNNY HOP
The first ever Westin Easter Bunny Hop rallies a 450+ strong crowd of families
Abu Dhabi, UAE– April 10th, 2011 – The newly opened Westin Abu Dhabi Golf Resort & Spa, located in the Khalifa City A area, joined in the Easter celebrations by hosting the first ever Westin Easter Bunny Hop in support the 2012 Starwood Hotels & Resorts ‘Road to Awareness’ campaign that raises funds for UNICEF. Masses of children hopped excitedly after the Easter bunny with the promise of a large chocolate hamper to the first child to catch thumper.
Other entertainments frequented the event such as face painting, egg painting, bouncy castle, egg and spoon race and an egg hunt of significant proportions. Some 200+ coloured eggs were stashed in the grounds of the hotel, along with 3 golden eggs. Children, accompanied by their equally excitable parents eagerly searched the lawns and left no leaf unturned in the frantic scramble for eggs. Scenes comparable to the search for the Willy Wonka’s infamous golden tickets unfolded before our very eyes until eventually the golden eggs were discovered. The excitement, so great in the eyes of the children, that the egg they bared may as well have been solid golf.
With the magnificent back drop of the National Course the event was well received by many expats who were spending their first Easter in foreign lands, thrilled to be able to join likeminded others in this time of celebration.
The proceeds of this event are to be donated to UNICEF as part of the 2012 Starwood Hotels & Resorts ‘Road to Awareness’ campaign. General Manager, Klaus Niefer says “Easter is celebrated by millions across the world. We saw The Easter Bunny Hop as great way to unite children and parents, friends and families. It was our way of giving something back to our local community, and raising some money for a great cause!”
