Christmas Lunch With a Difference
MaMaison Hotel Le Regina Warsaw, a WDA member, has teamed up with the Dr. Clown Foundation to offer companies unique Christmas workshops instead of holiday parties. The workshops are based on employee voluntary work to help children in hospitals who may be in need over the holiday period.

The workshops include such activities as preparing personalized Christmas cards, creating unique handmade decorations, trimming Christmas trees, and participating in a photo session. It also includes the preparation of traditional Polish Christmas dishes with MaMaison Le Regina chef Paweł Oszczyk and his team, a competition for identifying herbs and spices, and the possibility of involving celebrity volunteers who work with the Dr. Clown Foundation.

Participants can enjoy a delicious Christmas lunch after the workshops. For more information e-mail: reception.leregina@mamaison.com
