What is AWCB?

The AWCB is a non-profit-making organization (asbl/vw) offering educational, cultural and social activities for its members and encouraging their active contribution to the Belgian community. The Holiday Bazaar is the AWCB’s largest annual fundraising event; proceeds provide critical funds for the day-to-day operations of the Club and the capital expenses of its clubhouse.  The Holiday Bazaar & Charity Tombola is entirely organized and staffed by volunteers.

We look forward to seeing you, your family and friends in November!
