Doubletree by Hilton Dhahran hosted an art exhibition of works by a group of 35 local artists, organized as part of the Global Month of Service.
Held on October 30th and 31st, with the artist Madawi al-Baz, the wife of Sheikh Sami Hokair, as guest of honor, the event celebrated Doubletree by Hilton Dhahran’s year-round commitment to serving and enriching the communities where we live, work and travel.
Several the artists made live drawings before the audience while others created portraits that were sold at a token price
The event also featured a workshop to facilitate the exchange of knowledge on topics chosen by artists themselves.
“We were delighted to host this art exhibition and workshop,” said Ahmet Antepli, General Manager of the DoubleTree by Hilton Dhahran.
“Participation in social activities such as this gives our staff a sense of belonging to the community in which we live and work, while supporting charitable organizations and the arts is a part of our commitment to Saudi society in general.
The two-day event conclude with a celebration dinner in the hotel’s Al Waha International Restaurant.
Global Month of Service is Hilton Worldwide’s largest annual community service initiative and mobilizes hundreds of thousands of Team Members from every region to engage in numerous volunteer events and activities happening around the world.
Volunteers offer their time to support a wide range of projects including conserving natural resources, mentoring and training young people, creating amenity care packages for communities in need, collecting surplus food and distributing to underserved communities and aiding local communities devastated by disaster.
Since its inaugural service celebration in 2012, Hilton volunteers have provided support to more than 6,700 projects worldwide contributing more than 300,000 hours of community service. Last year in just one week, Hilton hosted more than 3,500 projects in 86 countries, volunteering more than 150,000 hours. The company aims to complete 3,750 projects across its global footprint.
Team Members are encouraged to share their personal stories of hospitality and community service.
