THE CAUSE

Crayfish Party Manila has raised PHP 1.4 million for the benefit of the Chosen Children Village over the last four years

The NordCham Executive Committee members and representatives from our Crayfish Party Sponsors were treated to a guided tour of the facilities, a great lunch and a special dance number put together by the children. We were all amazed and impressed with the facilities, the staff and of course the children – all orphans with various degree of mental handicap.

It is our goal the Nordic Crayfish Party will produce a significant contribution towards helping ensure the continued treatment and care for the children at Chosen Children Village.

For the past years, the positive financial results of the Nordic Crayfish Party has been converted to donations for the benefit of mentally handicapped children at Chosen Children Village.

The Crayfish Party is a tradition in the Nordic countries. During the month of August, Nordics gather at moon-lit parties to enjoy the seasonal Crayfish – a freshwater crustacean cooked in spices and herbs. The feast is made complete by an assortment of Nordic delicatessen, large amounts of schnapps and traditional sing-along songs.

 The Crayfish Party has been arranged in Manila for the past 15 years, first by Scandinavian Society of the Philippines and now by NordCham Philippines. The party normally gathers hundreds of party-goers from many countries.

It is a casual, fun-filled event where guests are dressed up in the traditional crayfish hats and bibs. The dinner is filled with party games and sing-along songs for everyone to participate in. Amazing prizes are up for grabs in the traditional Raffle Draw. The evening starts with cocktails, and ends with open dance-floor and the best music of the 70s, 80s and 90s.

The Nordic Crayfish Party is a fund-raising event for the benefit of Chosen Children Village Foundation, a home for abandoned children who are physically and mentally challenged.

THE CRAYFISH TRADITION

Eating Crayfish, or Astacus Astacus, goes back to the time of Swedish King Erik XIV in the 16th century. His highness was known to have farmed the crusty crawlers in his moat at Kalmar Castle. The native species in Scandinavia, flodkräftor, are therefore generally referred to as the Noble Crayfish.
