United Way Hungary successfully held its annual Gala event to thank our donors for their support and give them an overview of the social issues we plan to focus on for the upcoming period.
Funds raised during this year’s event will be spent on programs helping children and youth – especially those of underprivileged families – boost their academic performance and become self-sustaining adults through improved reading, comprehension and financial literacy as well as employment and entrepreneurship skills.
Our guests at the 35 tables are dedicated visionary leaders of the corporate and civic sectors who demonstrate philanthropic leadership through actions. They are actively committed to finding solutions to the problems at hand and creating lasting changes in their communities.
For the first time, we introduced The Volunteers of the Year Award.
The winners are:
Corporate Volunteer of the Year: Endre Ady
Mentors of the Year: Barbara Tolnai-Ónodi and Ákos Tolnai
Educators of the Year: Mrs. Csilla Szován Molnár and Mrs. Veronika Benedek Major
Thank you for our donors and volunteers for their support. Your donations and dedication will help Hungarian children and youth realize their dreams and achieve their full potential.
