With the sponsorship of Santander Consumer Bank and the support of the Board of Directors and the General Secretary of the Chamber, on Saturday, January 12, the traditional Three Wise Men Day took place, which we annually organize in the Boudewijn Seapark (Dolphinarium) of the city of Bruges.
The initiative of this event responds, certainly, to our interpretation of corporate social responsibility, as a voluntary contribution to the welfare of families who, because of emigration, run the risk of abandoning the tradition of the beloved Three Wise Men Day.
Over the past few years, the event is also aimed at families of refugees, hosted by the OCMW institution of the City Council of Bruges.
This year King Baltasar did not make the appointment and the Mayor of Bruges, Dirk De Fauw, represented him.
Baltasar De Fauw explained to the children the story lived more than two thousand years ago. Likewise, he justified the reason why the Three Wise Men, St Nicolas and Santa Claus shared the task of offering gifts to children during the Christmas season.
From the Chamber we would like thank to the Mayor De Fauw and Councilman Franky Demon for their support.
