United Way Hungary held its 9th Annual Gala Dinner & Charity Auction on the 19th of October, 2013, at Hotel Corinthia Budapest. Some 150 corporate and individual donors joined the event and beyond fundraising it also provided a perfect opportunity for UWH’s management to thank major sponsors for their support in 2013.
Through the generosity of corporate donors and individual supporters, United Way Hungary managed to raise USD 60,000 in cash - an increase of 30% compared to last year’s Gala Dinner revenue. Funds were raised through donations received for the dinner tables and through an auction for which world famous Hungarian sports personalities such as Áron Szilágyi, Olympic Champion in men’s sabre or Katinka Hosszú, World Champion in Swimming offered auction items. The programs and activities of the evening were LIVE UNITED themed.
