We are honored to invite you to the upcoming Charity Thanksgiving Dinner, benefiting the AmCham Foundation and the SOS Children’s Villages.
Remember last year’s Charity Dinner? We raised close to 3 million HUF for the AmCham Foundation and SOS Children’s Villages through ticket income, the sold-out raffle and the silent auction bidding. The goal is to top that in 2016!
Help us make that happen by joining the dinner or donating a raffle and/or auction item!
Since this invitation is not a personal one, we also encourage you to extend this invitation to your colleagues. It can be a good appreciation gesture at the year-end rush.
Don’t forget, celebrating with us not only Thanksgiving, but donating children in need!

Almost every culture in the world has held celebrations of thanks for a plentiful harvest. The American Thanksgiving holiday began as a feast of thanksgiving in the early days of the American colonies almost four hundred years ago. Thanksgiving is a time for tradition and sharing. Even if they live far away, family members gather for a reunion at the house of an older relative. All give thanks together for the good things that they have. In this spirit of sharing, civic groups and charitable organizations offer a traditional meal to those in need, particularly the homeless. On most tables throughout the United States, foods eaten at the first thanksgiving have become traditional.
