MAHAK Nowruz charity bazaar was held on February 28 – March 1, 2013 serving more than 4000 visitors. There were nearly 50 stalls offering international and domestic cuisine, international cocktails, ice creams, cakes, salads, accessories, t-shirts, shawls and scarves, cushions, table mats, leather apparels, stationery, make up, balloons, candles, toys, music, Hafez poetry, and vibrant plants among other things. There also was a stall presenting complimentary MAHAK newsletters and brochures to the attendees.
 
One interesting event that happened during this festival was selling the elements of Nowruz Haft-Seen  in a dedicated stall where a table was set with the seven S items symbolizing arrival of spring as described below with translations in parentheses:
 
Sumac (crushed spice of berries): For the sunrise and the spice of life
Senjed (sweet dry fruit of the lotus tree): For love and affection
Serkeh (vinegar): For patience and age
Seeb (apples): For health and beauty
Seer (garlic): For good health
Samanu (wheat pudding): For fertility and the sweetness of life
Sabzeh (sprouted wheat grass): For rebirth and renewal of nature
 
The atmosphere benefitted immeasurably by the presence of celebrities and social VIPs who mingled openly with everyone around. MAHAK is fortunate to enjoy the support of all the strata of society including well- known artists and athletes who not only actively support cancer-stricken children but also make them happy by their sheer presence and support.
 
Revenue generated by bazaar:
The Bazaar managed to raise 3,841,089,554 Rials which as always will be spent on medicine for and treatment of children suffering from cancer.
 
MAHAK fully appreciates all the kindness and support benevolent members and volunteers selflessly provide which, through these types of activities, help children remain children, giving them hope and conviction, preventing them from becoming reclusive, and thus assisting them in maximizing their chances for recovery and returning to normal life afterwards.
