IWCS Summer Pool Party (Members Only +1 Guest)

IWCS Summer Pool Party (Members Only +1 Guest)

Pool, Potluck and Prosecco Summer Party
For members + 1 guest (children 13+ only)
Sunday, July 28th from 12:00 – 16:00
Location: Shannon M’s home in Ostfildern 

(Please note that date of event has been changed, it was originally the 14th of July)

Beat the summer heat at a pool party hosted by member Shannon M, her husband Jonathon, and their friendly dog Autumn.. They’ll be cooking sausages and providing some starter snacks and drinks (both non-alcoholic and alcoholic, including Prosecco!), but guests are also asked to bring a side dish and/or beverage to contribute for a “potluck” style meal.

This will also be a fundraiser for IWCS’ designated charity, Frauen helfen Frauen e.V., so a minimum suggested donation of €5 per person will be collected at the door.

Street parking is available but spots near the house might be limited due to ongoing construction. Guests are encouraged to take public transit and/or bicycle. There are two U-Bahn stops a 10 minute walk from her house and Shannon will happily store any bikes in her secured garage during the event.

This event is limited to 20 guests in total so RSVP early! Please note that because of the pool, no children under 13 are invited.

This is a +1 event, which means:

  • Any IWCS member plus one guest are welcome to attend.
  • Your +1 can be a partner, spouse, teenage or adult child, or friend.
  • You and your guest each pay the member cost listed below.

The cost of this event is a minimum suggested donation of €5 per person, paid at the door. 

To reserve your spot, please RSVP  in the pending Facebook event or use the form below if you aren’t on Facebook.

IWCS 2019 MOTHER’S CORNER SUMMER PARTY
This event is for all IWCS members and their families!
Sunday July 7th from 11:00
Schulbauernhof Zukunftsfelder, Am Lotterberg 36, 70825 Korntal-Münchingen
Nearest station: Korntal Gymnasium

Bring the whole family to the IWCS Mother’s Corner summer party in July, being held at a farm near Weilimdorf! There’s lots of room for the kids to run around and a quick visit to farm itself is included. We’ll be grilling and having a potluck lunch.

The Mother’s Corner will be providing meat to grill and soft drinks – in case you need a veggie alternative, please let us know. We ask each family attending to bring either a side dish or dessert to share (veggie/vegan side dishes are especially welcome). Each family should also bring their own dishes and cups/picnicware.

All family members are welcome, including grandparents! Because we will be outside and at a farm, some things to think about include clothes that can get dirty, sunscreen, outdoor toys, and a blanket to sit on.

To RSVP, please use the pending Facebook event in the private members group or the contact form below if you are not on Facebook.

IWCS Charity Cocktail Party – Tickets on sale in May

IWCS Charity Cocktail Party – Tickets on sale in May

We’re really looking forward to our fundraising cocktail party on July 19th! Funds raised through ticket sales will be added to our annual contribution to the Frauenhaus women’s shelter  run by Frauen helfen Frauen e.V here in Stuttgart.

Even though this fundraiser is not our usual full-blown annual charity event, we still have a theme! This year we are excited about the theme ROOFTOP MENAGERIE because this event will be held at the top of the gorgeous Jaz Hotel in Stuttgart and we hope to get a little wild. We would like to encourage you to ‘dress the theme’ with your own interpretation but for some inspiration, check out our Pinterest board.

For 2019’s largest fundraising event of the year, IWCS members are invited to bring a +1 guest but tickets will be limited this year to just 40 guests total. With such limited numbers it’s important to buy your tickets early to avoid disappointment. Your RSVP in the Facebook event does not guarantee you a ticket; you must transfer your payment to the IWCS bank account to receive your confirmation.

All members will receive an email next week with all the necessary details about tickets, going on sale May 6th.

Frauen helfen Frauen supports women and children at risk in the greater Stuttgart area through its Frauenhaus, crisis assistance and counselling and support services. You can learn more about how IWCS donations have helped support them here.

2019 FUNDRAISING UPDATE

So far we’ve raised several hundred euros toward our annual fundraising target of €1500 but we still have many fundraising dedicated events coming up. With your support we can meet our annual contribution goals!

Members +1: Vineyards of Hohenasperg with Wine Tasting

Members +1: Vineyards of Hohenasperg with Wine Tasting

HOHENASPERG VINEYARD WALK & WINE TASTING
For members +1 guest
Saturday, June 29th at 14:45
Meeting Point: Asperg Train Station
Maximum: 25 participants

Asperg is celebrating its 1200th anniversary this year and wine has been produced there for over one thousand years!

Member Alison Tyler and her husband Peter Müller have organized a wonderful event for us in honor of this anniversary. We will walk from the train station up the hill and through the vineyards on Hohenasperg where we will stop to sample a sparkling wine and then walk on admiring the view and learning some of the local history of Hohenasperg from Peter. The end point of the walk (around 17:00) is the old wine pressing house or “Kelter” (one of the oldest buildings in the town) for our tasting of at least five additional local wines.

The wine tasting is being organized by the Interessengemeinschaft Asperger Weingärtners and Alison will introduce each wine. Snacks will be sponsored by the IWC Stuttgart!

We are welcome to stay in the Kelter until 20:00. There is also a small wine museum attached to the Kelter which will be open during the event. There is wheelchair access to the Kelter itself, but not along the vineyards or the museum.

If you are arriving by train walk to the very end of the platform where the lift and steps are located and the meeting point will be at the top of these steps. (Hirschbergstraße leading into Lehenstraße). The train station is around a 15 minute walk from the Kelter – just over one kilometre.

The member cost for this event is €20, to be paid in advance. €5 of your payment will go directly to our charity collection for Frauen helfen Frauen, which is possible thanks to a discounted wine tasting price given to us by the Interessengemeinschaft Asperger Weingärtners.

This is a +1 event, which means:

  • Any IWCS member plus one guest are welcome to attend (18+)
  • Your +1 can be a partner, spouse, older child, or friend.
  • You and your guest each pay the member cost listed above.

To start the reservation process, please RSVP in the pending Facebook event or use the form below to contact the activities team if you are not on Facebook. Please let us know no later than May 30th if you would like to attend – we need to reach the minimum of 15 confirmed wine drinkers for the tasting by that date in order for this event to go ahead.

Please complete your reservation by transferring your prepayment no later than Friday June 14th. If you have any extenuating circumstances that keep you from getting the funds to us by that date, please speak directly with the host so we don’t assume you are no longer interested.

Prepayments are non-refundable after the payment deadline. Members who have to cancel at the last minute are welcome to find another member or guest to send in their place.
