InterContinental raises QR10,000 for QCS

The Peninsula

InterContinental Hotels Group (IHG), Qatar Mixed Open’s major sponsor, has raised an impressive QR10,000 for the Qatar Cancer Society (QCS). 

Every year, InterContinental Doha Hotel & Residences, Crowne Plaza Doha the Business Park, and InterContinental Doha the City jointly raise funds for the Qatar Cancer Society. During the 2016 Mixed Open, the 15th year of the event, the annual gala dinner auction took place at the Doha Golf Club on October 22, 2016. 

“This year and as part of our ‘responsible business’ strategic vision, we continued with our charity auction on the awards night of the IHG Qatar Mixed Open, where we successfully raised QR10,000 for Qatar Cancer Society. The Society is one of the leading humanitarian organisations in Qatar which pledges to work towards increasing public awareness about cancer and cancer prevention”, commented Cyril Mouawad, Resident Manager at InterContinental Doha Hotel & Residences, during his speech at the awards night. 

Mouawad, proudly presented the cheque to Ammar Al Mashhdani, Public Relations Manager and to Omar Al Twaissi, Marketing Coordinator of the Qatar Cancer Society at the InterContinental Doha Hotel & Residences on January 26. Ammar and Omar showed their gratitude for IHG’s initiative by presenting a Certificate of Appreciation to InterContinental Doha Hotel & Residences and to the major sponsor of IHG Qatar Mixed Open 2016, Mitsubishi Motors. 

To support and contribute towards local charities is key. As we know, every amount is a big help to our local charities. Qatar Cancer Society’s main goal is to increase public awareness about cancer whilst continuously striving to find cures and preventative measures to eradicate the disease. Every effort made can and does make a difference.
