“Share the holiday spirit with good friends, great food, and the sounds of the season.”

The Cherab Foundation was privileged to be this holiday season’s chosen charitable organization. Each year the Headquarters Plaza selects one charitable organization, based on its commitment and dedication to the community, to honor at a festive gala. Past recipients honored with this prestigious nomination have included the American Red Cross, The Cancer Society, and the American Heart Association.

The joyful affair, held at the Headquarters Plaza during the holiday season, is a magical celebration of fun, food, family, and friends. Headquarters Plaza is a deluxe hotel in the timeless European tradition, with a dazzling ambiance, exceptional service, and a historic location.

On the eve of Wednesday, December 5, 2001, Santa arrived early at Headquarters Plaza to say “hello” to all the good little boys and girls.

With carolers singing under a grand Christmas tree that reached to the top of the cathedral ceiling of the hotel’s elegant lobby. Delicious hors d’oeuvre, a premium open bar for the adults, finger foods and beverages for the children were served while the exciting events of the evening unfolded. The evening held special moments and memories, lighting up more than the tree, for all of our families to treasure.

Many distinguished government officials were in attendance to raise awareness about the goals of the Cherab Foundation. The event was featured on News Channel 12, along with other TV stations, newspapers, and radio stations that joined us for this wonderful event.
