Sands Cares Ambassadors Support 50th Anniversary Caritas Macau Charity Bazaar

Sands China’s ninth consecutive year of manning game booth

                                                                

(Macao, Nov. 3, 2019) – A group of around 100 Sands Cares Ambassadors volunteered at the 50th Caritas Macau Charity Bazaar at Nam Van Lake Nautical Centre Saturday and Sunday by manning a game booth to raise funds for the nongovernmental organisation. It is Sands China’s ninth year in a row to help raise funds for Caritas at its annual charity event.
 

Sam Chongnin, vice president of corporate communications and community affairs for Venetian Macau Limited, presented a MOP 200,000 ceremonial cheque to Caritas Macau Secretary-General Paul Pun Chi Meng at the opening ceremony of the bazaar Saturday.
 

Through events such as charity runs and bazaars, Sands China has contributed more than MOP 4.7 million to the non-profit since 2004. The funds help support Caritas Macau’s operational expenses and its efforts to develop and implement social services in the community.  
 

At this year’s event, Sands China was one of three integrated resort operators invited by Caritas to print the company’s logo on one of four Caritas Macau Charity Bazaar 50th anniversary commemorative model cars to raise funds. Sands China donated MOP 70,000 in total for the production of 1,000 model cars.
 

Around 100 Sands Cares Ambassadors in total volunteered during the weekend charity bazaar to run Sands China’s game booth. Visitors to the booth won prizes like hotel stays at The Parisian Macao and tickets to its Eiffel Tower; first-class ferry tickets on Cotai Water Jet; and Sands Resorts Macao food and beverage vouchers, theatre tickets and Qube kids’ play zone tickets.
 

As it does each year, Sands China is donating all proceeds from the booths – without deducting costs – to Caritas Macau. The donation helps Caritas offer relief and rehabilitation services and support to disadvantaged groups in Macao.
 

The Sands Cares Ambassador programme was established in August 2009 to give Sands China team members an outlet for serving the local community by organising community activities and initiatives that work toward creating a better Macao. With membership of more than 3,300 volunteers from across all Sands China properties – Sands® Macao, The Venetian® Macao, The Plaza® Macao, Sands® Cotai Central and The Parisian Macao – the Sands Cares Ambassadors have contributed 100,000 hours of voluntary community service since the programme’s founding.
 

The Sands Cares Ambassador programme is part of Sands Cares, the global corporate citizenship programme of parent company Las Vegas Sands Corp.
