Unmissable shopping opportunity
Diplomats will change Hilton into an oriental Bazaar
This year´s Christmas season will be opened by a special festival, which will take you on a journey around the world. The annual International Christmas Festival of the Diplomatic Spouses Association (DSA) is truly a feast for the eyes, a parade of colorful costumes, flavors, aromas, art, music and dance. It is also an excellent possibility to support DSA´s fundraising activities by buying unique gifts and treats from all over the world.
„Our festival is open for everybody. Visitors can buy goods from more than 40 countries around the globe. Vendors in traditional costumes are often ambassadors in traditional costumes”, says the President of DSA, Mrs. Pham Ngoc Tram, explaining the concepts of this event. “In a way the International Christmas Festival has the genuine atmosphere of an oriental bazaar and this is enhanced by a rich cultural program.”
The Festival will be held on Sunday, November 29th, 10.00 a.m. – 16.00 p.m.
at the Hilton Hotel, Conference Hall, Pobřežní 1, Praha 8.
Tickets at 100,- CZK are available in pre-sale through www.ticketstream.cz,
and at 150,- at the Festival. Children under 12 are free.
Proceeds from the ticket and table sales go to charity.
The annual International Christmas Festival, organized by members of the diplomatic community, has become one of the most prestigious and sought-after Christmas events. It attracts thousands of visitors each year and offers the chance to experience the diversity of cultures from all parts of the world.
The funds raised by selling entry tickets, goods at the stalls or internet auctions on Aukro, from private sponsors or corporate donations are subsequently redistributed through grants to Czech charitable organizations.
“Unlike similar organizations, DSA donates 100 % of the raised funds to charity. Our portfolio is very wide: from hospitals to hospices, from orphanages to therapy centers or training of guide dogs. All projects are carefully chosen and the use of our donations is strictly monitored”, explains Mrs. Ilda Poda, the Charity Coordinator. Since 2000 DSA raised more than 61 million Kč, which makes them one of the leading local benefactors.
