Smiling Hospital Charity Gala, Budapest Marriott

An international gathering of some 200 guests dressed in evening finery flocked to fill the Foundation’s coffers for the fourteenth year in order to contribute to the Gala’s higher purpose: raising funds in order to raise seriously ill children’s spirits in hospital wards across the country. 

The evening program certainly provided plenty to smile about—welcome champagne, master of ceremonies Hans Peterson’s equally adroit English and Hungarian joie de vivre, musical interludes by winners of MTV’s “Virtuoso” series, and much more as you can see below.

Just before the pics, a final mention here needs to go to the Marriott Hotel’s generous HUF 500.000 contribution thanks to general manager Rick Enders. Text by Amy Módly
