AWCL News

American Women's Club of Luxembourg (AWCL)


The AWCL is a non-profit, volunteer-run group serving women in Luxembourg and the surrounding region. Members of the AWCL support each other as expats as they make their way through living in the Grand Duchy. All sorts of activities are offered and organized, for all ages. The AWCL has its own Clubhouse: a place where we meet, socialize and offer language classes. As a club, we also work to help the less fortunate in our own community and around the world, so many philanthropic activities and events are part of our annual program.

International Bazaar Success

Once again the AWCL participated in the International Bazaar at the Lux Expo with both a food and merchandise stand representing the USA. The two stands were under Chair Shar Helfgott, with Co-Chair Anna Van Eckeren helping with the merchandise stand. We would not have been as successful without the support of Arnita Hallerstrom, treasurer for both stands. The stands were manned by over 100 volunteers for the two day event which was heavily attended. A special thanks to all the volunteers, including the ISL and European School students, who volunteered with the various food and merchandise stations.

While we still don't have the tally of results, we expect to be able to make generous contributions to our charity, We Care Solar. The charity chosen by the International Bazaar committee for the overall event was Benin, the Congregation of Sisters, an organization which helps those who are the most disadvantaged within the community: orphans, vulnerable women, old people and the poor. We are proud to be able to participate and use these as our signature charity events.

The International Bazaar is the largest charity fundraising event in the Grand Duchy, supporting around 100 carefully selected charities each year from around the world. Over 50 nationalities participated this year. Crown Prince Guillaume and Princess Stephanie attended on Saturday, representing the royal family.
