July 2021

The IWCV is definitely back now with new outdoor activities for everyone, plus our regular on-going activities. We are planning a wine tasting soon – keep an eye on the IWCV website for details! Our fundraising efforts for the charities we support are also stepping up a bit – volunteers are needed! See below under “fundraising” for more information.

  • We had a fun and very successful “OWL” (night Out With the Ladies) on Wednesday 30 June, with 24 of our members plus their spouses/partners/guests enjoying refreshing drinks on Babilonia’s shady terrazza. We are hoping to have a monthly OWL on the last Wednesday of each month, so mark your calendars now for our next OWL on Wednesday 28 July. Many thanks to Daniela Thonon for volunteering to be our OWL coordinator!

  • First Tuesday Coffee – We hope to see many of you at MuviMent, behind the MUVIM Museum this coming Tuesday 6 July from 10:30am to Noon. All women in Valencia, both members and those who haven’t joined yet, are welcome to join us. Details are on our website at Events & Activities | IWC - Valencia (iwc-valencia.com)


  • July Luncheon – 2 PM on Thursday 15 July at Les Roques Restaurante, under sunbrellas on their terrace, but you are welcome to arrive a little early for a drink and to catch up with friends. Members only. To register and for full details, click here Members Only Events | IWC - Valencia (iwc-valencia.com)


  • Take a look at some of your new recipes posted at IWC Valencia Recipes | IWC - Valencia …so good! With so many of our members traveling (now that we can actually travel!) we will take a summer break from recipe collecting and will resume in September.


Casa Ronald

We continue in our quest to support the good work at Casa Ronald McDonald. Casa Ronald are selling their new Summer 2021 bracelets and have told us "Our 2020 bracelets inspired by the colored balconies of the House had a positive impact. This year we have decided to pay tribute to summer: time of freedom, fun, beach, friendship and of solidarity. Thanks to the collaboration and solidarity design of the Creative Agency Levenant we present the 4 different designs, (green, blue, yellow or salmon) you can choose the one you like the most or wear the 4 together. The Summer & Solidarity bracelets are for sale for € 2.50 each which, as always, will go entirely to the maintenance of the House so that we can continue with our work of housing families with sick children."

The bracelets will be available to IWC members at all events during July. Thank you again to all members of IWC for your continued support of this worthy cause.

Proyecto Vivir

Proyecto Vivir are in need of volunteers to help with watching, playing and teaching children in the 4-10 year age group. They also need volunteers at their store. If any of you ladies can spare an hour or two to help PV please contact the following number (+34) 963 857 058. Your help will be greatly appreciated
