Winter Bazaar 2014

                                                                                    IWC 2014 Winter Bazaar

                                                                        Shopping “From Around the World” for a Cause

The International Women’s Club of Moscow (IWC) held its annual Winter Bazaar at Radisson Slavyanskaya Hotel on Saturday, November 29. Mrs. Afrah Alfaddaghi, IWC President, is proud that, thanks to the heart-warming support of Moscow’s diplomatic community, the 26th edition of the Club’s largest charity event was once again a great success:

“This year a total of 70 embassies supported the Winter Bazaar – a fantastic achievement! A special thanks goes to the embassies of the Netherlands, Belgium, Italy, Poland, Hungary, Ireland, Greece, Japan, Kuwait, Slovakia and Turkey, our top contributors, and to GlavUpDK for their ongoing valuable cooperation. Only the combined support of all embassies and other sponsors together could result n proceeds raised, which goes to the charity projects supported and monitored by the IWC. This impressive fundraising effort would not have been possible without the strong commitment of the business community in Moscow, and therefore we would like to thank the numerous companies that supported their embassy’s stand and/or the raffle. This year more than 280 wonderful prizes, kindly donated by businesses and embassies, inspired visitors to buy tickets. The resulting raffle income was also  a significant contribution to the overall Winter Bazaar result.”

The 26th IWC Winter Bazaar strengthens the Club’s long tradition of international friendship, solidarity and cultural exchange. Around 3,500 visitors and 600 volunteers, both expats and locals, joined for the unique concept of “shopping from around the world”, enjoyed exotic food and discovered interesting gifts from all continents. This year’s cultural program exceeded all expectations with excellent dance and music performances and a wonderful fashion show offered by the embassies of Colombia, Ecuador, Greece, Indonesia, Mexico, Peru, Romania, Uzbekistan and Vietnam. Although the annual Winter Bazaar is the largest contributor to the IWC’s fundraising efforts, the Club organizes several other charity events throughout the year, including the fabulous Embassies of the World Dinner and Ball.
