SOLATO-kun's 2016 Christmas Event for Children

Taiyo Oil provided support for SOLATO-kun’s 2016 Christmas Event for Children, an event sponsored by Yamaguchi Shimbun, held on Friday, December 23rd (a public holiday) at Watanabe Memorial Hall located in Ube City, Yamaguchi Prefecture. This was the second time for Taiyo Oil to support this event.
 Children and parents living in Yamaguchi Prefecture were invited to the event free of charge where they were treated to an animation screening, a performance of Christmas music by a band, a balloon performance, and a raffle, which were all held on stage. Also, this time, "Santa hats" were handed out to the children who attended, which they all put on, filling the hall with Christmas cheer.
At the end of the event, all the children who attended the event were given special SOLATO-kun bags filled with a lot of sweets and SOLATO-kun related items. Children were very happy because these gifts served as early Christmas presents. The bags were made to the same size as the school bags used at elementary schools in Ube City, so that they could be put to everyday use.
As part of our social contribution programs, Taiyo Oil will continue to hold such events to support the rich spiritual development of children who will be responsible for the next generation.
