With a little over six weeks to go to the start of the Bazaar International, volunteers at the Lebanese stand are getting ready for the final preparations before the grand opening.
Under the guidance of Liliane Lamberty, the representative of the Lebanese stand, a group of 12 people met yesterday at the Atrium on Knuedler to discuss the finishing touches. Coordinating roles, logistics, merchandise to display, food preparation, stand fit-out and much more was talked about. This usual flurry of activity around Bazaar time is something the team is well used to, having had many years of experience in organising this event.
As it's website suggests, the International Bazaar is an organisation that is quite unique.
Run entirely by volunteers it is non-commercial and independent and combines the act of fundraising with a stylish multicultural event that attracts thousands of visitors into the halls of Luxexpo.
Now in its 52nd year it is the largest fundraising event in Luxembourg.
Every year the International Bazaar supports around 100 carefully selected charities worldwide.
Over 50 nationalities are represented under one roof, raising funds for worthy causes while also representing their own countries.
