    The AWCZ Halloween Parties are coming!

    Yes, 2 parties!

    This year it will be bigger and better than before with 2 parties! Our parties will be double the fun! This also means we'll need double the volunteers!  This year there will be a Littles Party from 10:00-12:00, for children aged 3-6. There will also be a Bigs Party from 13:30-15:30 for children 7 years and older.  The format for both parties will be slightly different, and both parties will be filled with age-appropriate activities.

    Both parties are currently SOLD OUT, but there a wait list is available. 

    If you are interested in volunteering, please send an email to: kidscorner@awczurich.org.

    We hope to see you there!

    We’re ramping up for our charity May 13/14 Book and Book Sale for FIZ (Fachstelle Frauenhandel und Frauenmigration) and the AWCZ

    First, let's give you some background. At the AWCZ we have PhASE (Philanthropy and Social Engagement) which provides volunteer opportunities for our members. PhASE organizes fundraising events and hands-on volunteering opportunities aimed at creating a close working relationship between a club-sponsored charity and our members. This serves as a meaningful way for members to engage with their local community. Our current Club-sponsored charity, FIZ, provides advocacy, counseling and support for women migrants and victims of human trafficking in the German-speaking part of Switzerland. FIZ operates 6 shelters for 35 women and counseled 400 migrants in 2021.

    Our Book & Bake Sale 2022, organized by our PhASE Chairwoman, Lisa W., was extremely successful: we sold over 2,000 books! To make it even more successful this year, we're looking for books, volunteers and baked good donations. 

    >> We're collecting books in good condition - only English and German children’s and adult English. No travel guides, cookbooks, text books, yellowed pages or other languages please. 

    >> We need volunteers. You'd like to help? Please choose a time slot here or email Lisa at phase@awczurich.org to donate a baked good:  https://doodle.com/meeting/participate/id/egnLzqZd

    Contact Lisa at phase@awczurich.org to let us know how you can support one of our biggest fundraisers!
