Women’s club set to host annual charity bazaar


QĐND – Tuesday, November 23, 2010, 20:52 (GMT+7)

An annual charity bazaar will be held on Nov. 28 by the Hanoi International Women’s Club, a non-profit social group of expatriate women.


The 19th annual bazaar, at the Water Sport Centre which is opposite to the My Dinh National Stadium, would showcase the diverse cultures of the expatriate community in Hanoi and so would be the perfect place to look for handicrafts from all over the world, a club spokesperson said.


There would be a kid’s corner to keep the little ones entertained while adults could bid on items in the silent auction or simply kick back with a cold drink and enjoy the cuisine of more than 30 countries.


The bazaar was supported by embassies and communities and local and foreign businesses. All the proceeds would go to supporting charities in and around Hanoi.


Tickets cost 100,000 VND (5 USD) for adults and 50,000 VND for children aged 3-12. Children under 3 are free. Tickets will be available at the gate or can be purchased in advance from Pure Heaven, JAFA, Jaspas, Oasis, and Restaurant Number Five.
