FOR EVERY CHILD, LAUGHTER
Sheraton Bali Kuta Resort teams up with local standup comedians, Standup Indo Bali and Ernest Prakasa in partnership with UNICEF to raise over USD15,000
The Sheraton Bali Kuta Resort team teamed up with Standup Indo Bali and Ernest Prakasa last month to curate a standup comedy show to help raise funds for underprivileged children under the UNICEF Check Out for Children program. It was a fun 2 hours of laughter, especially from the Standup Indo Bali crew!
With the support from some of the sponsors, they have also created a mini fun fare at the foyer, selling food, drinks, souvenirs such as books and mugs whereby all the proceeds will go directly to UNICEF. The event saw over 500 participants attending the show. “It was a really good show and the crowd were really entertained, everyone as laughing!” said Dario Orsini, General Manager of Sheraton Bali Kuta Resort. “I am proud that the collaboration with Ernest and Standup Indo Bali has helped raise over USD15,000 for a good cause”, adds Orsini. As a token of appreciation, one of the staff created a painting of Ernest and his family which was presented to Ernest Prakasa at the end of the show.
The UNICEF Check Out for Children Challenge is a staff fundraising competition between Starwood Hotels, now Marriott International, which began in 1996 and continues to gather strong support throughout the Asia Pacific region. UNICEF and Starwood Hotels & Resorts celebrated over 20 years of the Check Out for Children partnership to raise funds for the world’s most vulnerable children. The partnership has committed to providing all children, everywhere in Asia Pacific with access to clean water and basic sanitation.
