WELCOME- ISTEN HOZOTT
The Hungarian Community Club of Wallingford was founded in October of 1918 with the union of The First Hungarian youth Club and Senior Hungarian Men's Club. The Club's building site at 147 Ward Street was completed in December 1924 celebrated with a Gala New Years party.
The Hungarian Club firmly established itself as an important base for our Hungarian Heritage and now serves as a cultural center and event/ meeting place. The Club is available for rental by groups, clubs and organizations.
Our social club the Hungarian Community Club is located in Wallingford, CT and in operation since 1918. We are an all volunteer organization and operating our clubhouse from rental and event proceeds.
We have dinners and dinner dances for our members during the year, fundraisers that consist of food sales for the community and we invite performers celebrating the Hungarian culture.
Since mid-February we are not able to put up any events or do any rentals due to the Pandemic, therefore we have no income.
Since we have no paid employees and we are not not-for-profit there is no help for us from the SBA or from the government.
The expenses to own and maintain our facility did not stop and we are running out of our meager reserves.
The funds if received would be used to pay for property tax, insurance, utilities, cleaning and general maintenance / repairs.
We would be grateful for any help, and hopefully we could be in business for the next 98 years.
