IWC Charity Bazaar Sofia

This year’s IWC (International Women’s Club) Charity Bazaar will be held for the 17th time. It will take place on the 4th December from 11.00am until 5.00pm at the Inter Expo Centre Sofia. (Blvd. Tsarigradsko Shose 147)

Last year’s Bazaar was very successful. Around 50 countries participated, over 8000 visitors were passing by and a sum of BGN 300 000 was raised. The Dutch stand alone generated over BGN 10 000, one of the best selling tables. The entire amount was used to support charity projects throughout Bulgaria. Some of the projects include The Soup Kitchen, Hospice Miloderdie, Children’s Homes in Petrovo, Buzovgrad, Totleben and Varna, Children “who care” project, Family-type Home, Otets Paisii School and a Scholarship Program. If you would like to see more of these projects please see the attached brochure.

This year the Dutch Stand will focus on clothes and food such as Dutch cheese, eggs and Dutch apple-pie. A part of the Stand will be decorated like an “Old Dutch pub” where you can buy coffee with a treacle-waffle (stroopwafel). There will also be Dutch pea soup with Dutch smoked sausage and Heineken beers. For the kids there will be the possibility to play Old Dutch games.

The volunteers of the Dutch Stand, the IWC and of course, all the projects that are being supported, would appreciate it enormously if you would like to support the Dutch stand with clothes, food or a monetary donation.

If you are one of the sponsors at the Charity Bazaar, the IWC will express its gratitude to you in several ways: acknowledging your company in the IWC newsletter, on its website and in the following year’s Charity Projects Brochure. The logos of our Gold Donors (those who donate 800 leva or more) will be displayed on the day of the Bazaar to be seen by the thousands of visitors.

We are looking forward to seeing you at the Bazaar and we really hope that you will be able to contribute towards this worthy cause and make the Dutch stand an even bigger success than last year.

If you would like to help or if you have any questions concerning how you can contribute, please kindly contact me before the 12th November
