ACE 2018: WE ARE READY, ARE YOU?

It’s a busy time of year for the ACE organising team! We’re watching ticket sales, gathering raffle prizes, lining up supporting volunteers and bakers, and putting the final touches on decorating the venue to make a stunning atmosphere and an unforgettable night for our guests.

champagner-1071356_1920We’ve recruited photographer extraordinaire and IWCS member Sandra Ruth  to run our pop up photo booth, lined up the stunning Raunchy Rita and Fanny Di Flavola to wow our guests with a burlesque performance, and roped in Swingkultur Stuttgart to bring some joyful lindy hop moves to dance floor.

Taking place in the breathtaking salons of the Villa Humboldt, it’ll be a night not to be missed! Tickets are limited and look like they will be selling out soon. Buy your tickets today to avoid disappointment!

Here’s to the WINNERS!

Getting ready for the ACE? Remember to bring a few extra euros for our grand prize and pick-a-prize raffle table. New donors to our raffle table this year include MamaSpa , Lual Statement Earrings, Hochland Kaffee and Applaus Gin. We have also been promised a very special prize from the folks over at VfB Stuttgart, our local premiere football league team.

Our table will be piled high with great prizes including artwork, vouchers, sports memorabilia and wine! See the full list of our generous donors below.

GOLDEN TICKET

We will be raffling off 500 euros worth of Eurail travel in our GOLDEN TICKET – GRAND PRIZE prize draw. That’s a lot of rail travel! Raffle tickets will be 20eu each and only available at the event so empty out your piggy bank to take part!

WHAT TO WEAR?

Still not clear on what will make a show stopping ACE 2018 outfit? This is a cocktail event and guests are encouraged to take inspiration from the 2016 film La La Land which featured primary coloured ‘fit-and-flare’ dresses, classic style suits for men as well as the odd two-tone tap shoe. Think: modern take on classic Hollywood. We’ve had a ball making this Pinterest board to give you some tips. Check it out, especially if you haven’t seen the film!

ANNUAL CHARITY EVENT NEWS – EXCITING NEW LOCATION FOR 2018!

2018 ACE

The Charity Planning Committee is pleased to announce that we now have an exciting plan for the 2018 IWCS Annual Charity Event to share with our members and friends!

We are thrilled to bring our guests something new for this year’s benefit. The 2018 party to end all parties will take place in the extraordinary Villa Humboldt starting at 19:00 on Saturday, April 14th.

The Villa Humboldt is a gorgeous hidden space – a part of Stuttgart’s history – with an astonishing view over the city.  It is only open to the public until summer 2018 when its future becomes uncertain. We hope that you will join us for this once in a lifetime opportunity to visit this incredible location and help survivors of domestic violence in Stuttgart.

If you’ve been watching closely you might have already guessed the theme of the 2018 Annual Charity Event. We are calling it “Here’s to the Dreamers!” in a nod to the Academy Award winning film,  LA LA LAND.  In contrast to this year’s Black & White monochrome, we’ll be filling the dance floor with the warm colors of a Californian midsummer’s night. So romantic!

Watch this space for a link to our Pinterest inspiration board that will help you get into the mood and give you ideas for your 2018 party outfit!


Please share this post with your friends and help us spread the word.
Tickets will be going on sale soon!


About the IWCS Annual Charity Event

Each year we hold a benefit party to raise funds to support the work of our designated charity, Frauen helfen Frauen e.V, who help women in Stuttgart escape domestic violence and find safe housing. If you  would like to know more about our work with FhF, please read about it here in our website.

IWCS Summer Party 2017

Waldheim Heslach

IWCS Summer Party 2017
Sunday, July 9th starting at 12:00
Location: Biergarten Waldheim Heslach,
Dachswaldweg 180, 70569 Stuttgart-Dachswald

RSVP using the Facebook Event or use the contact form below

Friends, family and kids of all ages are invited to join us among the apple trees for a summer celebration hosted by member Claire DeVaney!

Fun activities are being planned, such as:

• Treasure Hunt
• Kids yoga
• Kids craft table

Everyone is welcome! (Note: this event will be open to people outside of the IWCS)

We’ve chosen Waldheim Heslach as the venue for our summer party because it is GREAT for kids:

• Loads of outside space and an awesome playground
• Very relaxed atmosphere with a lawn and shade
• Lovely serene setting among the apple trees
• Both covered and uncovered seating areas

They have great food and drinks with an easy numbered ordering system. Please keep in mind we are not allowed to bring in our own picnic food and drink.

The closest Ubahn is Waldeck. From there it’s either a lovely walk through the woods (15 mins) or take bus 82 one stop and follow signs for Waldheim (350m)

There is also parking available on site.

Please RSVP via our Facebook event  with the number of people you’ll be bringing and the ages of your kids before 3 July so we have a good idea of numbers.

If you are unable to access the Facebook event or have any questions at all, please use the contact form below to message me.

Hope to see you there!!

Claire
