Wind Creek Aruba Invites Local Charities to Participate in Video Contest

Wind Creek Aruba invites local charities to participate in video contest to be considered as benefactors of the $40,000 donation following 4th Annual Long Table Aruba event.

Tickets for this year’s event available on Wednesday, June 15 at 9 a.m.

After two long years, the 4th Annual Long Table Aruba hosted by Wind Creek Aruba returns to the island for a one-night, white-hot dinner that’s billed as “The only meal worth $40,000 for Aruba.” 

Tickets for the event will be available on Wednesday, June 15 at 9 a.m. Tickets can be reserved by calling 523-6187 between 9 a.m. and 4 p.m. There is a max of 10 tickets per person.

This year’s event, set for Sunday, August 28, also marks the fifth anniversary of the Wind Creek Hospitality acquisition of Renaissance Aruba. To celebrate the milestone, Wind Creek Hospitality will award one local charity $40,000 – a sum greater than all previous Long Table Aruba event donations.

Beginning Wednesday, June 15, interested charities can enter Wind Creek Aruba’s community-driven online video submission program, asking participants to share the reasons why they should be considered for the donation. Videos will be submitted on the Wind Creek Aruba website and voted on by the public to determine this year’s benefactor of the $40,000 donation.

The following guidelines are required for consideration:

  • Only active organizations in Aruba can participate in the contest (current Wind Creek Aruba employees are ineligible for consideration).
  • Entrants must be a Non-Profit Organization
  • Participants are asked to submit a 30 – 60-second video that showcases their organization (mission, who they are, what they do).
  • Videos will be posted in random order on the Long Table Aruba Facebook Page from July 1, 2022 – August 9, 2022, for public viewing.
  • The public will be able to vote on their favorite video between August 10, 2022 – August 24, 2022.

“We’re excited to bring this method of engagement to this year’s event. Awareness for the good work being done in Aruba, especially considering the last two years, is the goal of this video program. We’re excited to learn about more organizations and their missions, and hope this program helps to put more organizations into the spotlight,” said Wind Creek Aruba General Manager Paul Gielen.

Since its inception in 2017, Long Table Aruba has raised more than $75,000 for Aruba-based charities and is the marquee giving event for Wind Creek operations in Aruba. Community impact and disaster relief is a tenet of Wind Creek Aruba property operations. Since arriving to the island, Wind Creek Aruba has raised funds through their on-site hallmark events, Long Table Aruba and Winter Wonderland, in addition to providing in-kind hospitality and food donations year-round to organizations in need of disaster relief.
