Stollen Charity Cake Sale on December 8th

Majid Al Futtaim – the leading shopping mall, communities, retail and leisure pioneer across the Middle East, Africa, and Asia – has announced that Mall of the Emirates and Kempinski Hotel Mall of the Emirates will host the 12th Annual Stollen Charity Cake Sale on Friday 8 December. The much-loved fundraising event invites families and friends for a fun-filled festive experience to support a local good cause.

With 2017 being the official Year of Giving in the UAE, Kempinski Hotel Mall of the Emirates’ Executive Chef, Sudqi Naddaf, and his team of 30 chefs have spent weeks preparing and baking around the clock to ensure this year’s event will be bigger and better than ever, with the goal of selling a record amount of the German fruitcake and raising funds for Emirates Red Crescent.

The festive family event takes place in the mall’s Central Galleria from 10am on Friday 8 December, with the sixty-centimetre-long stollen loaves available to buy whole for AED100 or just AED5 for a delicious slice.
