TICC's Successful Christmas Bazaar




It鈥檚 evident that Tianjin International Community Centre (TICC)is one of this city鈥檚 reliable foreign institutions when it comes to holding successful events that are organised with the end goal of helping local and international charities, as well as sharing fun and fantastic activities for its members. Some of the fun activities that TICC hosts each month are coffee morning, luncheons, dining occasions and fundraising events.



This year, TICC held its annual Christmas bazaar at the conveniently-located Aulare Latin Restaurant in the Aocheng area. This is the second time that TICC chose Aulare as its venue for this joyful event. It happened on Novermber 21.



The bazaar started at 9am with community members offering different goods and services for bazaar goers. There was the stall alloted for selling clothing items 鈥 belts, blouses, and even winter clothing 鈥 all ready for buyers to grab. There were stalls for Christmas items like colourful Christmas decor, cards, and souvenirs. Fresh flowers were available, too, as well as colourful purses, shoes, toys, home decor, jewelries, Chinese arts, fresh breads and pastries and sweet treats like cupcakes and cookies, prepared and baked with love by the happy TICC members. There were also beauty services like manicures and massages for those wanting to have time to relax or beautify themselves.



By 11 am, Aulare Latin Restaurant was filled with bazaar goers scouring the stalls while also enjoying chitchatting with acquaintances found during the event. Mothers with their kids had a nice little area whereby kids could play with each other as moms chat together. There were friends who haven鈥檛 seen each other for a while and so the event was a venue for them to catch up over some coffee at Aulare鈥檚 bar area, while others were cheerfully strolling around the various stalls, looking for stuff they need. At lunch, TICC members and guests enjoyed Aulare Latin Restaurant鈥檚 exquisite lunch buffet made especially for the event. It was a meal filled with joyful people sharing stories and laughter over a superb range of delectable dishes.



TICC鈥檚 Christmas Bazaar was just the perfect way to kick start the Christmas season, the season of giving, as proceeds from the event were donated to the Jin Hua Foundation, a charitable institution known for their medical and social services, development projects, teachings, and orphan care. Next stop for TICC is their Christmas Ball that is going to happen at The Westin Tianjin on December 7, from 6:30pm to 12:30am with dinner, a live band, and many other surprises.
