This year’s BIS Christmas BISzaar was bigger and better than ever before with approximately 1500 people passing through the doors.
Seventy-two vendors were selling a huge range of products including jewellery, arts and crafts, pinatas, pottery, candles, natural cosmetics, textiles, Christmas crafts, children’s clothes, fashion and accessories, cushions, bags, placemats, Tea and Coffee gift packs .
Many vendors commented that it was the best BISzaar, and the BIS Parent Teacher Group had some great feedback from visitors, especially about the space and feel of the event.
Visitors were able to enjoy their shopping experience in a fantastically festive atmosphere thanks to music and Christmas Carols from our primary and secondary choirs. Families were able to make the most of a visit from Santa, and all the children that met him were thrilled to tell him what they wanted for Christmas and walk away with a lollipop.
Of course, some visitors did better than others on the infamous Christmas raffle. There were some fabulous prizes on offer including a stay at Ana Mandara, Six Senses Con Dao, Six Senses Ninh Van Bay, Sunday Italian Feast at Opera in Park Hyatt including champagne, 2 Magnums of Collection Privée Bordeaux 2009 from Red Apron.
BIS HCMC Parents and Teachers are proud to announce that through raffle ticket sales and the silent auction they were able to raise 72M VND. Combined with the 30M VND raised on the rest of the activities, the BIS Christmas BISzaar raised 102M VND for the schools community service partners. This is a sum of money that will do a lot of good, so thank you to everyone who bought tickets and to all of our sponsors who dug deep for excellent causes.
