Four Seasons Hotel Gresham Palace Budapest is launching a holiday charity campaign called “Wish Upon a Star” beginning December 1 and continuing through January 31, 2012. Guests can contribute with the purchase of a Silver Star card for $13 to fund the Hotel’s donation of educational books and toys to orphaned children in Hungary.

Yves Giacometti, general manager at Four Seasons Hotel Gresham Palace, says that the hotel and its team have been supporting local orphanages since opening. "In February, we will purchase toys and books with the funds raised during the campaign and present the gifts to a local orphanage. All contributors will receive a letter of thanks.”

The hotel is also extending its soup kitchen project in cooperation with Menhely Alapítvány, a local shelter program, until the end of August 2012. Every Thursday, guests and employees can support the kitchen by helping to prepare meals for homeless people at the shelter.

The Hotel also continues to support the global commitment of Four Seasons Hotels and Resorts to plant 10 Million Trees. This autumn, Four Seasons Hotel Gresham Palace has planted 220 oaks—the symbolic tree of Hungary—in the city, representing the Hotel’s 220 employees.
