9/10/2005 - AHF Gala Dinner to Support the Hungarian Schools in the Csango Region to be held on October 8th, 2005 in East Brunswick, New Jersey! The The event features a classical cultural program as well as dancing and will honor Brother Csaba Bojte, whose incredible work resulted in the establishment of eight homes for the abandoned Hungarian orphans in Transylvania. In May, he started building the first Hungarian School in the Csango Region, where the Romanian policy of destruction of Hungarian heritage is the strongest. Brother Csaba suggested that the building of the classrooms should be supported by donations of various Hungarian cities, showing solidarity and each classroom would bare a sign with the name of the donor city.
The 100 year-old American Hungarian Federation would like to be the first to dedicate a classroom in the name of Hungarians in America by providing the funding. The greatest Hungarian, Istvan Szechenyi said “We are not inferior to any nation.” We are confident that Hungarians in America will unite to fund a classroom, as a permanent tribute to the oppressed Hungarian children. We want to be an exemplary beacon of the solidarity of Hungarians to the thousands of Hungarian Csango students, as well as to the Hungarians all over the world.
Dinner tickets are $125.00 per person. Any donations over the price of the ticket will be very much appreciated and all such donations will be used exclusively for the erection of the classroom, and are fully tax-deductible. We will provide you with the appropriate receipt for income tax purposes and your name will be included on the donors’ list to be given to Brother Csaba when the gift is presented to him. We are able to provide you with reduce rates for hotel accommodations at the Hilton Hotel in East Brunswick at a cost of $109.00 for the night, as long as you call 1-732-828-2000 and reference the Hungarian Banquet.
