Doha, December 29, 2010: As the season’s spirit fills the air, ever-stylish The Pearl-Qatar is treating Doha residents to a festive end of year. The International Ladies’ Potluck Group (ILPG) Annual Christmas Brunch has been held to high praise at The Pearl-Qatar that treated a group of over 80 women to an eventful day at the luxury destination.
The ILPG is a social community of 400 ladies from 70 countries. It offers its members an opportunity to make new friends from different nationalities and celebrate other cultures.
The day began at 9 am with a warm welcome at The Oyster on the island where the ladies gathered before being treated to a guided tour of the island, stopping off for some South Asian culinary delights at Noodle House.
In the spirit of gift-giving a raffle draw was held - some lucky ladies won valuable prizes that included plane tickets to France, The Pearl-Qatar nautical activities, hamper bags, beauty care gifts, beauty treatments and meal vouchers.
But that is not to say that only raffle draw winners went home happy - each lady was treated to a holiday gift bag sponsored by a world-class luxury brand.
The festive morning concluded around midday with a leisurely walk along La Croisette, Porto Arabia’s boardwalk, where participants were given an opportunity to shop and see the latest collections from The Pearl-Qatar’s luxury boutiques.
“This kind of day truly embraces the international spirit of Doha. These women come from all corners of the globe to exchange cultures. We at The Pearl-Qatar are very pleased to have hosted this event and take part in this cross-cultural community’s activities,” said an official of The Pearl-Qatar’s master-developer United Development Company (UDC).
The Ladies’ Group expressed their gratitude for having UDC share their festive season spirit in a letter saying, “We are truly grateful for the efforts you made in making our ILPG Christmas Party a big success. It was indeed a fantastic experience we had at The Pearl-Qatar, a breathtaking view. We really enjoyed the tour of the boardwalk. It was truly a real treat and fun to all our members. Looking forward to see you again and organize another event at The Pearl-Qatar.”
