Monday, January 13th American Women’s Club will hold our monthly Bring and Buy Sale from 10,30 a.m. to 2 p.m. We will have a wide selection of gently worn or brand-new winter clothing for the whole family, as well as shoes, accessories, household linens and gadgets, toys, and books. Come and shop, bring your friends. We’re located at Plaza Ecuador, 6 near metro Colombia and right next to Talleres Ecuador. You’re also most welcome to stay for a while and help us out with the Sale by attending customers, refolding clothing and bagging. It's a great way of practicing your Spanish. Bring and Buy is a steady fundraiser for our Club and a source of revenue to support our Club and donate to our charities. Without your help, we couldn’t pull off this monthly miracle. Clean up starts at 2 p.m. and lasts until about 4,30. All help is likewise welcome for clean up, especially if you’re not available mornings for the Sales hours.

During the year 2014 AWC will celebrate its 60th Anniversary!! 60 years of providing a forum for women from all over the world who reside in Madrid to come together and make a difference in many lives, including their own. 60 years of providing a home away from home for women who come to Spain on a temporary basis and find a place to hang their hats and warm their hearts. And 60 years of contributing to the Madrid community through our charitable endeavors. How has AWC managed to survive for 60 consecutive years? Many people are to be thanked, but AWC would like to close the year 2013 by expressing our special gratitude to our sponsors and donors to the 2013 Holiday Bazaar. The Bazaar is our principal fund-raiser of the entire year. It’s also a showcase to make our Club and its members known to the greater Madrid community. Without the aid of the companies, cultural and sport associations, and private individuals who year after year donate prizes, food, beverages, and logistical support for the Bazaar, we could never make this mega-event happen. In the file attached below this article you’ll find a list of our donors and sponsors.
