ANNUAL CHARITY EVENT 2016 PLANNING KICK OFF

After the huge success of this year’s Annual Charity Event, the Organizing Committee has decided to hold the event again in April 2016. All the proceeds raised during our Annual Charity Event goes to the local women’s shelter Frauen helfen balloonsFrauen e.V., the designated charity of the IWCS. This year we were able to raise 5000 EUR and we think that’s a good reason to keep doing it.

The 2016 ACE will be another themed party, but we haven’t decided on the motto yet. We are interested in hearing what themes would make you excited about the event. You can post the suggestions in our Facebook members’ group or contact coordinator Vaida Kovalick using the contact form below.

Organizing this yearly event requires quite a bit of time and effort, hence we need your help and support. Many amazing ladies were involved in ACE 2015 (remember the photos, cocktails etc?), and we really hope to have enough volunteers this time as well.

Here are the main areas where your help is needed:

  1. Raffles and sponsorships: This is the big one – we need to raise money! These volunteers would contact companies asking for raffle prizes and cash donations; help with letters, written in German; ideas, which companies/organizations to contact for sponsorships – maybe it’s your family’s or friend’s business or the company you or your spouse work for etc;
  2. Event promotion: from invitation design to spreading the word around and cross-promotion;
  3. Decorations and Entertainment: once the theme has been chosen, ideas for party decor and entertainment;

We are holding our first ACE 2016 organizing meeting on Wednesday, 7 October 2015, at 10:00 at Alte Kanzlei  – click here to RSVP via the Facebook Event or use the contact form below to let her know you’d like to attend.

If you can’t come to the meeting, but would still like to be involved in organizing ACE 2016 or share with us your ideas and suggestions, don’t hesitate to contact Vaida either via Facebook or via the contact form below.

The team is looking forward to working with as many of you as possible this year!
