HANOI (VNS) — The largest and most colourful family fun day and charity event on the calendar for the capital city is now returning for its 22nd year. Taking place on Sunday on the grounds of the UNIS in Ciputra, the bazaar reserves room for country community and charity institutions as well as social enterprises, alongside commercial stands. A full day of entertainment, with international performers, is planned for both the young and the old.
Last year, the Hanoi International Women's Club Charity Bazaar attracted 150 tents and saw participation from 33 countries and communities as well as 9,000 visitors. The event raised nearly VND2.5 billion (US$120,000) in support of a number of projects with the humanitarian objective of improving the lives of women and children in northern Viet Nam.
This year's event will run from 10am to 3pm. Tickets can be purchased in advance from JAFA, G2-G3 Ciputra; Jaspas, 49 Hai Ba Trung Street; Kitchen, 30 To Ngoc Van Street; Oasis, 24 Xuan Dieu Street; and Pure Heaven, 55 Xuan Dieu Street. — VNS
