FAQ – Annual Charity Event 2012

As with every activity or event, there are always questions so please keep them coming by submitting yours in the form at the bottom of this page and we will answer them as quickly as possible. Some questions we have recently had are answered below:

What will the evening be like?
This elegant and sociable event will be very similar to last year, with delicious drinks and snacks (both warm and cold) served throughout the evening and dinner music during the first half of the evening. Later on, we’ll kick things up a notch and dance the night away to music from Mr. Mac’s Party Team. Included in the entrance fee are all non-alcoholic drinks, two alcoholic beverages as well as the seasonal “Flying Buffet.”

The WAC has a foyer and large hall for socializing and mingling as well as a cozy bar for quieter conversation.

There even is an outside space for our smoking guests.

What is the venue like? Is it part of a museum?
The venue is the main hall of the Württembergische Automobilclub e.V. in central Stuttgart, go to WAC1899.com for more information. The club was founded over one hundred years ago by Daimler, Maybach and Bosch.

It is not connected in any way to the Mercedes Museum and in a different part of the city altogether.

Is the event only for women or for members with partners?
In short: no! In fact, we would love to meet your partners and encourage you to bring your friends, both male and female, to make it a fun, sociable occasion.

Please do not hesitate to come “without a date” – many of our members also came alone last year and had a wonderful time.

How can we pay the entrance fee?
This year guests will have the choice of purchasing tickets in advance with cash or putting their name on our guest list and paying via bank transfer.

Members and prospective members may purchase tickets with cash at a monthly club meeting or evening get together.

If you would like to pay for your tickets online, please submit your RSVP using the form on the main event page and you will sent an email with our bank information.

How will money be raised for the Frauenhaus?
Corporate sponsorship and a portion of your ticket price will make up the bulk of our fundraising. Raffle tickets will also be available to purchase and those members who cannot attend the event are welcome to send a dedicated donation on behalf of Frauen helfen Frauen.

Unfortunately,  we will be unable to issue tax receipts for that portion of your entrance fee over and above the costs of the event, although receipts for additional cash and bank transfer donations will be available.

Where can I park on the evening of the event?
Our host, the WAC 1899, recommends that you park on Mörikestrasse, Humboldtstrasse, Hohenstauffenstrasse or Hohenzollernstrasse. All are in the immediate area surrounding the club.

What shall I wear?
This is a very good occasion to dress up a little and an opportunity to take your party outfit for a spin on the dance floor. Anything from a cocktail length dress to dressy black pants with a sparkly top works! While the event is an excellent opportunity to dress shop, don’t worry if you can’t or don’t want to. Just pretty yourself up a little and you will be fine!

How can I invite other people?
Friends, family members and the general public are all welcome to attend this event! Please feel free to share with them the main event page here on our website or our post on Facebook.

Is there something I can print off and hang on my office’s blackboard or give to my spouse or partner for his office’s blackboard?
Yes, we will have printable flyers available for members to distribute. Please contact us below or watch for updates in the club newsletter.
