This past weekend, Bloomberry Resorts Japan was the sole “special sponsor” for the 1st Annual Wakayama Santa Run held outside Wakayama Castle, tightening its links with the community where its IR ambitions appear to be centered.
More than 1,000 local people participated in this charity event, which was also attended by Wakayama Governor Yoshinobu Nisaka, the prefecture’s top advocate for an IR bid. Funds raised through the Santa Run were donated to children afflicted by serious illnesses.
President Takeshi Hojo of Bloomberry Resorts Japan commented, “We strongly agree with the spirit of the Santa Run which—like Filipino hospitality—emphasizes kindness and consideration for others. As special sponsors, we provided bottles of water to the participants. We express our deep respect to the organizing committee and the other stakeholders. Also, we appreciate sincerely this opportunity to be of assistance to children who are fighting illnesses.”
