EDB 2013

The Embassies of the World Dinner and Ball is a unique fundraising event, which consists of two parts. First, guests are invited to have dinner in one of the embassies or ambassadors’ residences in Moscow. Each Ambassador usually hosts 8 to 20 people. Afterwards, everybody gathers at a central location in the city for an unforgettable evening of dance, music and live entertainment. This year 2014, Hotel Metropol welcomed all guests in its beautiful Art Deco ballroom.                             Photos and Sponsors for 2014 are here.

Embassies of the World Dinner and Ball 2013

         Our 17th Embassies of the World Dinner and Ball was a huge success! Comments and compliments were
given by many of our attendees indicating that a wonderful time  was  had by all. Many patrons expressed
that they are already looking forward to next year!

Our guests began their evening enjoying gracious dinners hosted by the Ambassadors of Columbia, the Czech Republic, the European Union, Hungary, Latvia, Poland, Switzerland, and Uruguay.   Friendships were made, stories were told, and amazing cuisine was served and savored by all. The Embassy evenings were simply lovely. Guests arriving at the Ball spoke of their elegant hosts, beautiful embassies, incredible dinners and the fascinating people they had the opportunity to meet. The details of the dinners were a great part of the conversations that buzzed throughout the evening at the Ball.

       Hosted by the European Union



Our arriving guests were welcomed by IWC members at the entrance table and entered in the raffle. Although each ticket stub was an automatic entry into the raffle, many patrons bought multiple extra tickets as the donated prizes were truly spectacular!

It was a remarkable bounty of prizes. The evening raffle was very exciting indeed! Our Charities team was overwhelmed and thrilled by the support that we received from our sponsors and guests.


Upon entering the reception area for the cocktail hour, our guests sampled the extensive hors d’oeuvre buffet and the wide selection of international wines, liqueurs, spirits, beer, and, of course, non-alcoholic beverages, as the Kreda Band softly played.

Throughout the evening, the Lexicon Band and Orchestra kept the energy high in the Grand Ballroom. Guests danced and enjoyed the extensive repertoire performed by this fun and talented band. In addition, our two highlighted performers, Tango Singer Ms. Tatiana Izotova and Mezzo-Soprano Ms. Natalya Vasilyeva, gave a special sparkle to our evening. Following the performances was the amazing raffle draw. We had phenomenal support from our sponsors which resulted in many guest winning wonderful prizes.  

At the end of the evening, as our guests departed, they were given a final keepsake photograph by our professional photographer, Ms. Natalia Inka, and a “Goodie Bag” filled with chocolates, periodicals, and other items from our incredible sponsors  to remember their “Evening in Paris” with the IWC.


We would like to again thank everyone involved who made the evening a success. We owe a huge debt of gratitude to our amazing volunteers. Without them, the night simply would not have been possible.
