For a Committee member the IWAK Christmas event already starts in September. While members are still enjoying Indian summer days, we prepare for what is to come. We visit different locations, try their food, feel the atmosphere and approach the owners and managers for offers. Meanwhile our feelers run overtime and we reach out to our network to collect wonderful raffle and auction items to offer to our guests.
Before the event began some of us were already setting up at Velo. Around 7 pm the first guests arrived and were welcomed with a drink. Soon the place was bustling with members, their partners and friends. I was selling the raffle tickets. Sorry to have disturbed your conversations but I do thank you all for buying them so generously. Meanwhile the food was brought to the middle table. We enjoyed sushi, Mexican soft tacos, mini hamburgers, breaded mushrooms, salads, brownie and apple pie for dessert. The DJ started, we danced and then stopped the music… It was time for our raffle and lucky draw prizes. Beautiful items passed hands as party guests drew lottery tickets one by one. I saw many happy and surprised faces, for me Harleen’s reaction was the best. By the end of the evening we closed the auction bidding and some of us went home with a helicopter flight to plan, a guided Czartoryski museum tour, a scented oil lamp, a handmade vase and a Fastline beauty treatment.
Outside it began to snow and a white blanket covered Kraków, reminding us how privileged we are to be here together.
Thank you all for supporting the animal shelter so generously at the IWAK Let it Glow Festive Fundraiser.
