Sands Macao Shares 12th Anniversary Celebrations with Macao Taxi Drivers

Continues tradition of complimentary boxed meals for the city’s local cab fleet

(Macao, May 18, 2016) – Sands Macao celebrated its 12th anniversary Wednesday with one of its annual traditions – providing complimentary boxed lunches for Macao taxi drivers.

Over 120 meal packs were offered to taxi drivers arriving at the hotel Wednesday, and featured double-boiled pork ribs soup with Chinese herbs, poached chicken á la princess with ginger dip and braised sliced of sea whelk and fish maw with black mushroom.

Sands Macao’s custom of showing appreciation to Macao’s fleet of cab drivers as part of its anniversary celebrations has been in place since the opening of the hotel and entertainment complex in 2004.

“Sands Macao has been dedicated to delivering outstanding experiences to our guests and visitors for 12 years now,” said Ben Leong, vice president and general manager of Sands Macao. “We appreciate the vital contribution made by Macao’s hardworking taxi drivers in serving the local community and our city’s many visitors, and we are pleased to thank them as we celebrate the ongoing success of Sands Macao.”
