It is a tradition for employees of Melco Crown Entertainment to donate their mooncakes given by the company to the Macau community every year before the Mid-Autumn Festival. This year, in collaboration with the Adult Commitment Day of Pan Mac Junior Chamber, Melco Crown Entertainment volunteers and over 20 local youths distributed the donated mooncakes to over 800 community members in Macau.
To give this annual tradition a meaningful touch, Melco Crown Entertainment invited over 20 local youths – who are just turning 18 this year, and are participants of the Adult Commitment Day of Pan Mac Junior Chamber, vowing to become an active citizen from age 18 onwards – to be part of the distribution team.
Ms. Akiko Takahashi, Executive Vice President, Chief Human Resources and Corporate Social Responsibility Officer, said, “I wish to thank all our colleagues and volunteers who participated in this activity. Our Co-chairman and CEO Mr. Lawrence Ho is grateful to our colleagues who have donated their own mooncakes and delighted that the concept of giving back to the community is demonstrated by the youth.”
