Giant Easter Pyramid at the Hilton Colombo

General Manager, Hilton Colombo, Jerome Auvity opening the Giant Easter Egg tree

Eggs... travagant Easter, the latest in the line up of Hilton Colombo’s activities is an initiative that is set to brighten and enlighten the lives of many this Easter. It is a festive tradition that has been innovatively used as a fund raiser for the children of the Ceylon School for the Deaf and Blind, Ratmalana.

A massive structure containing 200 plus Easter Eggs creatively designed and crafted by students of the Ceylon School for the Deaf and Blind and the Overseas School of Colombo will be on display on a giant pyra mid at the Hilton Colombo throughout the season of Easter. The intricately designed EGGS are a portrayal of the creative talent and abilities of these children while each EGG is symbolic of the individual artist. This is indeed a unique and innovative idea to provide the children with an opportunity to exhibit and exert their talents and creative skills while also functioning as a fundraising initiative for the School.

Commenting on this initiative, Jerome Auvity, General Manager of the Hilton Colombo stated that the Hilton Colombo was honoured to initiate a fundraiser of this nature as a commitment to their CSR partner; the Ceylon School for the Deaf & Blind, Ratmalana. “It is not only the celebrations and festivities that matter, we also need to look beyond that and this Easter, the Hilton Colombo offers you with an Egg ... travagant opportunity to do that,” he said. Further, he added, that a certain percentage from the Easter Sunday Brunch and Easter sales at Fine Things will also be contributed towards this fund. “More exciting activities are in the pipeline, so we urge you to watch out!” he concluded.

These beautifully crafted eggs are for sale in order to raise funds for the Ceylon School for the Deaf and Blind, Ratmalana. By purchasing an EGG and making a pledge at the FINE THINGS counter located at the lobby, anyone could contribute to this unique effort this Easter. The eggs have been numbered for convenience and could be collected on the eve of April 12 or before, if required.
