On the 8th of December 92 International Women and their husbands attended a fabulous Christmas Party at a Van der Valk hotel in Maastricht. These amazing ladies are a member of International Women Club-South Limburg ( IWC-SL).
The president of the International Women Club South Limburg Beth Mulhall said the following about this event: ‘It was a joy and honour to share such a wonderful evening with our International women, their partners and friends. As with all our club events, different cultures, backgrounds or language do not matter when everyone is enjoying fun and laughter together’.
During the ball the participants collected money for The Royal Marsden Cancer Charity Charity which raises money solely to support the Royal Marsden, a world-leading cancer centre. (https://www.royalmarsden.org/about-us)
