Come and join us on Thursday December 19th 2019 for a fantastic evening of good food, live music, dancing and lots of prizes! Glam it up at the Bansko Winter Charity Ball in the luxurious and well known Regnum Bansko 5 Star Aparthotel & Spa.

Bringing together residents, holidaymakers, apartment owners, local authorities and local and national businesses to welcome the holiday season, to have fun, to celebrate together, and to make a real difference to the lives of local children with disabilities and young people in need of support.

The Bansko Winter Ball is a not-for-profit event created to bring our communities together, to make a difference to the lives of people in need and also to local disadvantaged children whose lives are enriched by the effort of a local charity to play, experience and enjoy activities that would normally be impossible or unavailable to them.

Come and join us for an evening of fine dining, fantastic live music, dancing, and lots of raffle prizes to be won on the night.

A great excuse for the ladies to glam it up in style (the men can dress up too).

“We want to make a difference locally in our adopted country , that’s why we chose Bulgarian charities; to give something back to those in need.”The Bansko Ball Team

the Charities

We’re raising money for two amazing charities in Bulgaria here’s how you can help…

chili peppers cause

#ChilipeppersCause aims to support the daily needs of children from poor families, but we also aim to work towards social integration and personal development of at-risk children.

More than 4,000 children in Bulgaria are at risk of being deprived of their natural family environment and given up for foster care because their biological parents are unable to care for them at this time.

The main goal of #chilipepperscause is through various social activities, children to come out of the reality they are immersed in, due to circumstances that have no fault, to get acquainted with a new circle of people, to feel the support of the outside world, to know that there is someone to rely on, to know good examples, to be in cooperation with qualification courses, training, to search and find work, to mentor and assist.

More information at:

Sunflower Bansko

It is good to give back to your local community.

The main focus of Sunflower is on fundraising to provide support for elderly, disabled or disadvantaged individuals within the social care system.

Sunflower has its roots firmly in the local community, as well as being supported by the many people who choose to holiday in this fantastic region of Bulgaria.

More specifically, but not exclusively, we support on an ongoing basis:
– Four protected homes in Bansko that house male and females who cannot fend for themselves. Houses 1 & 2 are for adults who are mentally impaired and unable to work and Houses 3 & 4 are for adults who need some assistance in their lives but who can, with help, find employment.

– A home for elderly with Dementia in Mesta (a village under the Bansko municipality).

– The Zdravets Day Care Center for more severely disabled or disadvantaged from 3yrs up.

And other local projects that may arise and that we can help provide a better future for.
