(VEN) - The Consular Club of Ho Chi Minh City (HCMC), formed by diplomatic missions working in the city, will hold the 25th International Charity Bazaar on November 3 at the Adora Center Convention Centre, 431 Hoang Van Thu Street, Ward 4, Tan Binh District.

This year’s bazaar is a special occasion for the Consular Club, as it celebrates 25 years of friendship between the host country Vietnam and the Consular Missions in HCMC, as well as the continued financial support for charity organizations that provide humanitarian aid to disadvantaged people in Vietnam.

The Consular Club focuses especially on aid for orphans, the disabled, the elderly and minority groups. All Consular Club members volunteer their time to work towards improving the quality of life of the disadvantaged people in Vietnam.

Last year’s bazaar raised more than 70,000 USD and the Consular Club supported 12 projects including education scholarships for children and young adults, treatment for blindess in infants, infrastructure to deliver fresh water and the creation of an aquaponic system to create a sustainable food source for an orphanage.

This year, the event begins at 9:30 am and runs until 3:00 pm. Entry tickets cost 100,000 VND for adults, while children under 6 accompanied by an adult can enter free of charge. There will be a free play area for children and plenty of activities to keep them happily occupied.

In addition to the chance to buy a wide range of international goods and food, visitors can also purchase tickets for the popular Raffle Draw. Raffle tickets are available for 50,000 VND each, and prizes include premium necklaces from our Platinum Sponsor – Swarovski, airline tickets, vouchers for stays at deluxe resorts and hotels in many famous locations throughout Vietnam, spa packages, lunch or dinner vouchers in luxury restaurants in Saigon and much more. Every prize in the raffle is worth at least US$100.
