Annual Charity Event 2018 Update – Tickets on Sale February 1st!

Villa Humboldt

The ACE 2018 Team is currently working overtime to create an exciting charity event for members and guests of the International Women’s Club Stuttgart to be held on April 14th this year.

Plans are underway for a party like we’ve never had before! Here is what’s different this year:

NEW VENUE!
The Villa Humboldt is a grand old lady carefully watching over the Stuttgart valley and, although she may have a few wrinkles, she is nevertheless enchanting. We are so excited to be among the few people who will be able to visit and celebrate in the Villa before it is sold to private developers and starts a new life.

Built in the early 1900s, the house was originally home of a diplomat who lived there with his family and it stayed in the hands of the family until 2014. Apart from some disrepair and little aging the house has remained largely unchanged over the years.  The Villa Humboldt gives visitors an exclusive peek into the lives of Stuttgart’s past well-to-do families as well as the most stunning view any house in Stuttgart could offer.

TICKETING
A standard ticket  will cost €70 per person. As in years past, this includes a welcome glass of bubbly and another drink of your choice, a buffet dinner, and a full evening of entertainment with the IWCS at the Villa Humboldt.

This year we will also be offering table packages for groups of ten people starting at €65 per person.

Eventbrite
We’re pleased to announce that 2018 ticketing will be processed exclusively through the Eventbrite ticketing portal.

In 2017 we tried out Eventbrite for managing ticket sales.  Guests found Eventbrite easy to use and were really pleased to have a ticket delivered to their in-box. But it was behind the scenes where Eventbrite’s benefits really paid off.  Instead of dealing with unwieldly lists, chasing payments, and matching records, members of the organizing committee could leave the work of seamlessly providing guest tickets to Eventbrite while we concentrated our energy on making the ACE a fun and successful evening.

Tickets go on sale February 1st at our Eventbrite portal – watch this space for the live link!

WHAT ISN’T CHANGING

  • FRAUEN HELFEN FRAUEN – Like every year, funds raised at the Annual Charity Event will support the work of Frauen helfen Frauen e.V, who manage a women’s shelter right here in Stuttgart. Their work helps to support victims of domestic violence in finding safe housing for themselves and their children.
  • PICK-A-PRIZE RAFFLE DRAW – You will again be able to try your luck in our mega Tombola complete with donations from some of Stuttgart’s most generous businesses.
  • PHOTO BOOTH – There will be plenty of opportunities to have great photo taken with your friends in their finest outfits in our photo booth.
  • DRESS THE THEME – You’re invited to get creative in dressing up our 2018 theme of ‘La La Land’ (the movie). If you need some inspiration, check out our Pinterest mood board for ideas!

If you have any questions you can get in touch with a charity committee member using the contact form below or in the pending Facebook event.

It is an unbelievable pleasure to be working on such an exciting event to support this important and worthy cause. With your help, we can help victims of domestic violence in Stuttgart to find safety again and have a grand time doing it.

We are absolutely FIZZING to see you there!
