The Zonta Club of Muntinlupa & Environs (ZCME) is holding its annual undraising event on November 3 and 4, 2012 (Saturday and Sunday), from 8AM to 8PM at the Cuenca Covered Court in Ayala Alabang Village, Muntinlupa City. Featuring a festive Indian theme, the Bollywood Madness Bazaar is inspired by India’s vibrant colors, attractive ethnicity, exotic cuisine, and the global emergence of Bollywood movies.
“After the highly successful Moroccan bazaar last year, we want to reinforce the iconic branding of our annual fundraiser,” explains Nancy Harel, Public Relations Officer of ZCME. “A different theme each year allows us to differentiate our bazaar from all the others.”
Established in 1988, ZCME is composed of professional women working together to elevate the state of marginalized women and children in the city of Muntinlupa. Through the organization’s various projects, issues such as education, politics, health, and economics are addressed, thereby empowering women to become contributing and productive members of the society.
The annual 2-day bazaar aims to raise funds needed for the Club’s numerous community service projects. Two major beneficiaries of this event are SAGIP (Saklolo at Gabay ng Ina at Pamilya), a 24-hour crisis response center for abused women and children of Muntinlupa and TDZ (Tulong Dunong ng Zonta), a high school scholarship program granted to underprivileged but intelligent young girls in the city.
Participating at the bazaar is Republiq of Asia, who will offer its selection of handmade clothes, jewelry, accessories, and home furnishing. Some of these fair trade products are directly sourced from all over Asia, Australia, and Europe.Another participant to look out for is Silnag, a local company that sells native hand-crafted jewelry made from sustainable indigenous materials.
The Bollywood Madness Bazaar is made possible through the generosity of YKK Philippines, Pioneer Insurance, Hans Brumann Jewelry, Bay &HecSenares Gasoline Station (PHOENIX), Graman Fashion, EJ Litton Foundation, and Crocs Philippines.
