Champagne Brunch benefiting SOS Mothers to Be



On Sunday, April 19, AWC Basel and SOS Mothers to Be hosted a lovely champagne brunch.  Members and guests enjoyed an amazing food selection, champagne, coffee, tea, and various other bites.  The afternoon was capped off with a musical entertainment by Brazilian singer Anissa Damali.  Through our joint efforts, we were able to raise CHF 2,150 for SOS at the brunch!
