We are pleased to report that in the last few of years the Hungarian House of New York were exciting, busy and successful. In 2017 we organized 15 large community events including exhibitions, concerts, lectures, public fairs, and fundraising events. Last year we also organized a street festival, the II. Hungarian Heritage Festival, presenting twenty-three artists from Hungary. Regularly the House is home to Hungarian Scouts’ activities, the Hungarian Heritage Group organized by The Széchenyi Society, Hungarian language classes organized by the American Hungarian Library, Hungarian folkdance classes for children and adults, Hungarian Mommy-and-Me Playgroup, and since September, 2015, we are hosting the Arany János Hungarian School as well.

These activities were made possible by generous donations received during our fundraising campaigns, as well as by the many volunteers who generously contributed their time. We are grateful and appreciative to these individuals who understand the mission of the Hungarian House and the importance of keeping Hungarian culture and heritage alive and share it with the public in New York. We hope to make the future years just as successful as the previous ones, and present many more cultural and community programs.

Our sincere hope is that you will support our fundraising campaign and event and continue to be a contributor, financially and otherwise and will help support Hungarian cultural awareness in New York City. We would be honored if you would personally share this special occasion with us!

Respectfully yours,

László Hámos, President of the American Hungarian Library and Historical Society

Imre Lendvai-Lintner, President of the Hungarian Scout Association in Exteris
