A fascinating evening ends with a donation of $25,000
Renaissance Aruba Resort & Casino exceeded all expectations with the second edition of ‘Long Table’, as the culinary event was completely sold out a month before date. For just one night Renaissance Aruba served dinner on the longest table on the island. The table covered a large part of the L.G. Smith Boulevard accommodated 1,000 people. This year all proceeds of the event went to one charity: the Casa Cuna Progreso Foundation.
$25.000 donated to Casa Cuna Progreso Foundation
The community contributed to the good cause by buying a ticket for 25 dollars. All 1,000 attendees enjoyed a three course dinner, accompanied by two glasses of wine. The Renaissance Aruba culinary team once again did a fantastic job! At the end of the evening a cheque with the amount of $25,000 was handed over to representatives of the Casa Cuna Progreso Foundation. Renaissance Aruba Resort & Casino, GM, Mr. Paul Gielen, expressed his delight for being able to do this for the Aruban community. "This event fits perfectly within the philosophy of the Renaissance Aruba Resort & Casino, which is now part of the Wind Creek Hospitality Group; to give back to the community and contribute to the positive development of our people. I would like to thank all colleagues who have worked hard to make another edition of the Long Table a success. I would also like to thank everyone who bought a ticket so that we could raise funds for Casa Cuna this year. We hope to be able to count on you again next year! "
As far as the long table is concerned, Renaissance Aruba received the cooperation from the authorities to close the road and set up the elegant table just in front of the resort. Around 10 pm the road was opened again to the public. The music was provided by Lilly Love Band and DJ Joa and Erin Croes, the director of Magic 96.5FM, was MC for the night.
