BC, Riga, 20.11.2018.Print version
On Saturday, 1 December the traditional Christmas Charity Bazaar organized by the International Women’s Club (IWCR) and over 30 foreign Embassies will take place in Riga City Council premises.

The Charity Bazaar, which will be held for the 22nd time, presents a cross-national cultural experience and an opportunity to taste typical food and drinks, as well as purchase original gifts for your loved ones – presents, handicrafts, toys, handmade items, wine and delicacies from all around the world– a perfect choice for Christmas Shopping.

 

The Christmas Charity Bazaar is supported by foreign ambassadors with their families, and a strong international community. One can enjoy Christmas Carol singing by children and taste culinary products from all around the world presented by through the embassies and  participate in auctions and games.

 

Thanks to the festive atmosphere the Christmas Bazaar has also become very popular with the local community, with many Latvians attending to enjoy the international experience.  Notable local officials also join, and last year, Latvia’s First Lady Iveta Vejone attended, bought gifts and chatted with guests and volunteers.  

 

At last year’s Christmas Bazaar more than €40 000 was raised, through the support of our sponsors, Embassies, and the IWCR Members.  All the proceeds were donated to 17 charities all around Latvia, carefully selected for their impact in Latvia, and focus on women and children. 

 

The Christmas Bazaar will take place on Saturday, December 1 from 11-16 PM, in Riga City Council, Ratslaukums 1, Riga.
