Our foundation participated to make succesful the movement „Piano to the Town” "Zongorát a Városnak"
. We have bought chairs and found supporters and now we have it! Civil organizations, private people, companies supported the movement. As a result of the succesful collection also the Town of Monor contributed to the goal, so today in the big hall of Vigadó we could consecrate the Steinway
piano. The first concert was performed by Károly Mocsári in honour of the contributors.

Speech of the chairman of Monor Hegyessy Lions Club
It’s my pleasure to greet you in this beautiful, pleasant evening. We all contributed to be able to organize this event here..
That’s why I would like spend this evening in the spirit of thanks, gratefulness and music.
Can a charity club have bigger happiness than when a decision reaches success? I don’t think so.We, members of Lions Club are very happy and thank you for this feeling.
You must know that our club, Monor Hegyessy Lions Club is a member of a world-wide charity organization, goal of which is to help people living in disadvantageous circumstances.
Money, collected on charity events are used for the above purpose.
In 2007 we thought – hoping in wide contribution – the excellent acoustics big hall of renovated Vigadó would be suitable to organize charity concerts in it, income of which could be used to help needy people.
But a music instrument is needed for this purpose! A piano! But it is not all the same what piano! A concert piano, the price of which is cca. 7-10 million HUF even in used condition. It was a shocking amount then! Anyhow we initiated money collecting movement of „Piano to the Town!” We didn’t dare to think that the decision will reach its purpose within so short time.
For this great common cooperation I’d like to say thanks to first of all Dr. Burzuk Valika, idea owner and fighter of this movement
Thanks to the members of Lions Club, who collected money with a lot energy and effort, using their free time.
Thanks to Károly Mocsári pianist who found the most suitable piano for us and what is very important he convinced the owner of the piano that our money collection will be successful and the money will be available within reasonable period.
Thanks and gratefulness to Monor inhabitants, economic associations, civil organizations, people, living out of Monor and everybody who belived – together with us – that they serve a good purpose with their contribution.
Last but not least many thanks and even more gratefulness to the local government of Monor, mayor Mr. Tibor Pogácsás, he contributed to our movement with the missing amount to be able to buy the piano soon.
Now the town has got the piano!
Lions Club will borrow it to organize charity concerts 2 times a year.
About colleaction of money we make a settlement, it will be published in Monor Strázsa newspaper..
Names of the contributors will be preserved on a small board for the future generation.
We wish this beautiful and valuable instrument serves to everybody’s pleasure.
In the name of Lions Club I wish you a nice evening.
Chair-woman of Monor Hegyessy Lions Club
