The 28th Winter Bazaar was held on Saturday, the 26th of November 2016, at the Radisson SAS Slavyanskaya, Moscow. Since its inception, the Winter Bazaar has become one of the most anticipated events in the Russian capital.
Members of the International Women’s Club of Moscow, with the support of over 100 volunteers, organized the bazaar. This is the single biggest fund raising event of the club.
This year, the Winter Bazaar was held under the patronage of the IWC president, Mrs Victoria Seligo, wife of the Ambassador of Slovenia to Russia. Around 4,000 visitors enjoyed the bazaar. The visitors included the dignitaries from the government, diplomatic society, businessmen, artists, expats, and locals.
The IWC is proud to announce that an amount of 6.3 million roubles was generated at the bazaar. Profits from the funds raised will be used to support the IWC charitable projects. The bazaar was able to raise money through sales of several items provided by 56 Embassies and businesses. These included national art, crafts, souvenirs, national dishes, and other fascinating products. Embassies and businesses also donated many attractive raffle prizes, which formed the main attraction amongst our visitors. Attendees at the bazaar also had an opportunity to enjoy national dances, performances by various artists throughout the day.
The International Women’s Club of Moscow expresses its deepest gratitude to all the volunteers and participants of the event and look forward to seeing you again in 2017!
