Students from the Budapest Music Academy, and the children's choir of the German School Budapest, all enchanted guests with magical Christmas melodies.

After what guests said was an excellent four-course-menu served by the Kempinski Hotel Corvinus, the Cool Miners Band invited everyone onto the dance floor.

This festive event also included a traditional raffle for charitable purposes, this year supporting:

The Magic Lamp Foundation - which has been fulfilling the wishes of children with life-threatening illnesses since 2003 - received the receipts of the raffle tickets sold during the evening: HUF 350,000.
