Everything But the Kitchen Sink

Lux Coporation Meets in Bali and Donates Cash, Washing Machines, and Water Purifiers to Bali's Relief Efforts.

(3/1/2003) Lux - a well-known manufacturer of household appliances, chose Bali and the Sheraton Laguna Resort for a meeting for 100 of its top international executives in the third week of February 2003.

The Directors of the Lux Asia-Pacific Conference marked the close of their conference in Bali by making a donation of US$ 2,000, a washing machine, and a water purifier to the Bali Hope Fund - a charity established by Casa Grande to assist the victims of the October 12th terrorist attack. Casa Grande is the association of starred hotels in Bali.

The Lux executives made the decision to hold their conference in Bali in order to share the magic and beauty of the island with their co-workers while at the same time demonstrating to the world their confidence in Bali as a safe and peaceful destination for international tourism. Once Lux had arrived on the island and safely enjoying its world famous hospitality, they decided to also make the tangible gift to help alleviate the suffering resulting from the October attacks.
