19th International Charity Christmas Bazaar

We are pleased to announce that the Canadian Embassy is holding a Canada table at the International Women’s Club (IWC) 19th International Charity Christmas Bazaar, which will be held on December 5th, 2015 from 11:00 to 16:00, at Town Hall (Rigas Dome), located at Ratslaukums 1, Riga Old Town. This bazaar has been always a popular event as it provides the opportunity to purchase unique items for the holiday season from charity vendors and different national tables. Last year there were over 30 countries participating and more than 26 000 EURO were raised. If You wish to read more about the charities we support or find more information about previous International Charity Christmas Bazaars, please visit our home page www.iwcr.lv.

Registered from 1995 as an NGO, The IWC of Riga represents an international group of women from 33 different countries offering friendship, the opportunity to learn about Latvian culture, and, through our charity work, the chance to put something back into the local community.

This year we would again like to invite the CanCham members and friends to donate the items for sale at the Canada table at the Charity Bazaar. Items for sale on your table could include, but are not limited to, souvenirs, unique national products, textiles, food items, just about anything!  Of course, direct monetary donations are also always welcome. For donation, please, contact Ms. Zane Valtere Predele at zane.valtere-predele@international.gc.ca.

We thank you very much for your consideration of the above, and we look forward to seeing at the bazaar this year.
