SHOP FOR A CAUSE

Town & Country (Philippines) - - OUT ABOUT CULTURE TOP TEN -

The Filip­inaZ Fair or­ga­nized by the Zonta Club of Makati and En­vi­rons takes place at SM Aura Premier this month. The highly awaited an­nual bazaar will have fur­ni­ture, home and Christ­mas dé­cor, unique fash­ion finds and ac­ces­sories, and much more. More than 90 ex­hibitors are tak­ing part, of­fer­ing items such as baubles and jew­elry from Kit Sil­ver by Mila Im­son, All That Glit­ters, and Cal­ima Jew­elry by Clau­dia Hernandez; one-of-a-kind ac­ces­sories from Ec­centrics by Ju­liana San­tos-Gar­rett; whim­si­cal bags by Threads and Trends; and in­dige­nous shawls, pon­chos, and tu­nics by Kabayan Weavers. The fair will also have a Filipino-themed Christ­mas Vil­lage, with stalls for re­gional del­i­ca­cies, sweets, and drinks. Set­ting the Filip­inaZ Fair apart from other Christ­mas bazaars is its mis­sion. Cre­ated by women, the fundrais­ing bazaar’s pro­ceeds specif­i­cally ben­e­fit women’s in­sti­tu­tions, ad­vo­ca­cies, and projects. Th­ese in­clude the Pyscho­log­i­cal Cen­ter in Mar­il­lac Hills that offers care for abused chil­dren; the Em­pow­er­ing Women Schol­ar­ship Pro­gram (for the prevention of vi­o­lence against women through ed­u­ca­tion); the NO to Early Mar­riage and Teenage Preg­nancy work­shops; the club’s Health, Nu­tri­tion, and Hy­giene Pro­gram for mal­nour­ished chil­dren; and other health ser­vices and liveli­hood pro­grams for marginal­ized com­mu­ni­ties in Makati and Taguig. Novem­ber 4 to 6 from 10 a.m. to 9 p.m.; SM Con­ven­tion Cen­ter, SM Aura Premier, Boni­fa­cio Global City. For in­quiries, con­tact Imelda B.
