The St. George’s Day charity event in support of UNICEF Hungary on Wednesday, April 24 still has some tickets left. Spots can still be reserved (email info@xpatloop.com) and paid for on the door for HUF 30,000 per person.

The fundraiser will be at the Etele Cinema Premium Level (Hadak útja 1, 1119 Budapest) with the red-carpet reception starting at 6 p.m. The dress code will be smart casual, though there will be a prize for the best Amy Winehouse costume. The celebration is expected to run until midnight.

The party will include a recital by Alexis Latham of pieces from Shakespeare (the Bard was born and died on St. George’s Day). Later in the evening, there will be a screening of the Amy Winehouse biopic “Back to Black” in the Etele Cinema Premium rooms, along with fine wine tasting and international street food. Funds will be raised through an auction hosted by TV star Zsuzsa Demcsák. The event will be followed by an after-party with an expat DJ playing English soul, pop and rock hits.

Ambassadors Paul Fox (of the United Kingdom), Ragnar Almqvist (of Ireland), and Désirée Bonis (of the Netherlands), are among the guests of honor. Antónia Mészáros, the executive director of UNICEF Hungary, and Georgina Szilágyi, country director of the British Council Hungary, will also be among those attending.
