We Love What We Do!
The International Christmas Festival is a prestigious annual event organised and coordinated by the DSA. This year, The Congress Hall of the Hilton Hotel was once again the venue of this vibrant and important fundraising occasion. The festival was opened by Mrs. Zemanova, the patron of this DSA activity.
Visitors had the opportunity to buy a wide variety of products from all over the world: souvenirs, clothing, fashion accessories, jewelry, handicrafts, arts, traditional food and beverages. We give thanks to the Embassies and Diplomatic Missions who initiated, organized and collected products and items donated by national companies in their respective countries and foreign companies operating on the Czech market. All the proceeds from the International Christmas Festival will be used for different charities in Czech Republic as the unwavering mission of the DSA in providing help to the less fortunate people in the community. The last year’s proceeds from the International Christmas Festival of 2,670,000 – CZK were distributed to 24 charities in the Czech Republic.
Any Czech non-profit organization may apply for a charity donation. The application had to be submitted to the DSA by January 16th, 2016. If you are a charity and missed the deadline, please save your application for next year!
Every year the DSA organizes the Kids’ Corner during the International Christmas Festival. This is a service rendered by the DSA for the parents visiting the Festival with little children, to help them to enjoy more freedom and flexibility. Last year around 100 children were happy to stay at the Kids’s Corner. All children between 3 and 12 years of age are very welcome.
The event was held at Congress Hall of the Hilton Hotel
