The historical Petroff Palace was the superb setting of the 19th Embassies of the World Dinner and Ball, one of Moscowâs most fabulous charity fundraisers that is annually organized by the International Womenâs Club of Moscow. Guests had the opportunity to have dinner in one of Moscowâs embassies or diplomatic residences prior to the Ball. This year the embassies of Australia, Chile, the Czech Republic, the EU, Kuwait, Switzerland and Uruguay generously hosted dinner, a unique experience guests still talk about!
Those who decided not to go for dinner in one of the embassies were treated to an exquisite buffet at the Ball, so all were sufficiently strengthened to dance the night away in the spectacular rooms of Petroff Palace. The IWC organized live entertainment and a raffle with luxurious prizes, and guests could take home a gift bag and keepsake photo. The atmosphere of the evening was elegant and fun â a combination that ensured everybody had a great time.
According to the IWC, the event was a grand success thanks to the vital support of the diplomatic and business community, media partners and volunteers. A special mention goes to the International School of Moscow and the Embassies of Canada, Namibia and New Zealand for their generous donations, all of which contribute to the funds raised for local charity projects supported by the IWC. Moscow expat Life already looks forward to the 20th Embassies of the World Dinner and Ball, an anniversary edition that will not pass by unnoticed!
