Members from Austria, Azerbaijan, Egypt, France, Germany, Great Britain, Hungary, India, Japan, Taiwan, Turkey and the United States danced the night away to celebrate the 30th anniversary of the International Women’s Club of Budapest (IWC) at the IWC Ball at the Marriott Hotel last Saturday.
Cutting the IWC’s cake marking its 30th anniversary are former chairwomen (from left): Maria Takacz, Archenuer Birch, Ingrid Ortgies (present chairwoman) and Tasleem Lalji.
IWC chairwoman Ingrid Ortgies welcomed everyone to the auspicious occasion. She thanked all the ball sponsors and partners who made the night such a success. Guests who were lucky enough won prizes such as a trip to the Greek islands, jewellery, a wellness weekend and fashion accessories from leading labels.
The goal of the IWC is to support charitable activities related to healthcare and education in Hungary, and proceeds from the ball will go to supporting children and hospices. Dr. Muszbek from the Hospice of Budapest was guest speaker and thanked the club for its donation.
Master of Ceremony for the evening was György Banlaki, former Hungarian ambassador to the United States.
