The 16th Annual Budapest Burns Supper in 2013 was held in the stunning ballroom of the Corinthia Hotel, Budapest, on 26th January 2013.

The almost 240 guests were treated to a splendid 5-course dinner worthy of the 5-star hotel, complete with beer sponsored by Heineken, wines sponsored by Varga Pincészet and Hangácsi és Fia, as well as whiskies sponsored by Diageo (Johnnie Walker) and WhiskyNet.

 

The 8 pipers and drummers flown in specially from Scotland provided the musical entertainment along with two opera singers, Szilvia Vörös and Csaba Gaál, who performed a Mozart duet on the gallery of the ballroom, and not to mention Dagda, our resident Scottish folk music band who have supported the Budapest Burns Suppers for many years.

 

Thanks to the generous donations of all those present the raffle and auction raised the princely sum of HUF 5 million or €17,000 for the Foundation and its projects, and so a big thank you to all those who continue to support the work of the RBIF in Hungary.
