On behalf of the United Nations Women’s Guild Board 2015, Welcome to the 47th International Festival Bazaar Blog!
My name is Josefina Diaz Menendez, Bazaar Chairwoman 2015, and I would like to welcome you to the International Festival Bazaar 2015, scheduled for Saturday 28 November at Austria Center Vienna (ACV). The photo above is with our partner at ACV – from Left to Right: Lisa Herzlinger, MA from Austria Center, Bazaar Chairwoman 2015, Josefina Diaz Menendez and UNWG Board President 2015, Diana Oyugi. My team and I are open to receiving your questions and ideas for this year’s Bazaar; with six months until November the planning is underway.
We invite you to enjoy the world with us! Bazaar offers something for everyone, from restaurants serving international cuisine, to entertainment from talented performers, to the international products for sale and our exciting tombola, all in the name of children’s charity.
The International Festival Bazaar is our largest fundraiser of the year. With the money raised in 2014, the UNWG allocated 223,018 euros in Grants to 31 organizations in 24 countries, helping to touch the lives of more than 17,754 children in need. We can only do this with your generous support.
We are proud of the cooperation that the International Festival Bazaar has generated among the international and local community and look forward to your support and participation this year.
