Xpat Community Ezine / Thursday 17 November 2016
Dear Member, first up this week it’s a Big Happy Birthday to Budapest!

You may be surprised by the fact that Hungary’s capital is only 143 years young today, as Buda, Pest and Óbuda all merged into a single city on 17 November 1873. More>>

Next up, we’re delighted to announce the final result of all funds raised at the Xpat Party for Charity is HUF 4,236,000. So many people put much time and effort into making this year’s event even better and more successful than ever for charity, we wish to say thank you again and confirm every single forint raised on the night by XpatLoop.com readers and partners will go to help Hungarian children in need. Click here for details about the trusted beneficiaries.

In case you didn’t already see what went on you can check out:
