[photopress:COFC_Challenge.gif,full,alignright]The Westin Beijing, Financial Street has launched a fundraising event to raise money for Unicef immunisation projects helping children in the Asia Pacific region.
The event named ‘The Wheel of Hope’, which runs till the end of August, is part of Unicef’s ‘Check out for Children Challenge’. Hotel guests who donate RMB100 can spin a big wheel in the hotel’s lobby and win prizes of spa treatments, complimentary stays at the hotel and various other rewards.
Starwood Hotels and Resorts (which owns The Westin) runs the ‘Check out for Children Challenge’ annually, and this year, the target for the Asia Pacific region is US$90,000. Since the program started in 1996 it has raised more than US$3 million, and in 2006, funds went towards immunisation programs in Myanmar, Mongolia and Bangladesh.
