"Thanks for a nice party, I am happy the evening was such a success. I would be glad to help out next year, as well." Adam LeBor

"Congrats on the great event (as always) and the successful charity drive!" Barbara Ürögdi

"Thank You for giving us the opportunity to be a part of this great event." Csilla Cseh

Robert Milders, the Dutch Ambassador to Hungary, attended as a guest of honour, and summarised the event as, ”A great success!”.  In a follow-up letter he wrote, "I was impressed with the high turnout, which clearly shows that is a vibrant organization, capable of mobilising a large and mixed group of people to attend a well organised event. This is clearly a winning formula which no doubt helped the 'Smiling Hospital Foundation' achieve a record result of financial support from your event. Equally important to note is the great amount of useful information that your website provides. I wish XpatLoop all the best with its business and many-hued contacts, I sincerely hope we will see each other soon again!".

"I want to say again 'thank you' and now in writing. Yesterday, when we could look each other in the eyes and with every possible sincerety, Countess Éva and I thanked you very much. Stephen, you did a great job as organiser of a wonderful event, which was clearly appreciated and visibly very much liked by all your guests. We as Smiling Hospital Foundation were the very lucky beneficiaries of the fundraising element; and this element was made by you as the main priority of the whole event, it seemed. Countess Éva and I very much enjoyed ourselves and we are extremely grateful; sorry for all these superlatives!" Dr. Albert Royaards, President of the Smiling Hospital Foundation
