Opportunity for Foster Care Youth!


The Hungarian-American Sports Scholarship, organized by Hungarian Hub and the Parents’ House Public Benefit Foundation, has launched to provide opportunities for talented youth in foster care to pursue a sports career in America. The initiative, spearheaded by Pazauer Piros, President of HungarianHub-Magyars in America and founder of Hungarian Summit, aims to send selected individuals to Florida for a one-month sports camp at DME Academy.

Esteemed athletes such as three-time Olympic champion swimmer Katinka Hosszú, three-time Olympic champion water polo coach Dénes Kemény, and Olympic champion fencer Áron Szilágyi have generously contributed by donating autographed sports equipment. Their support underscores the program’s commitment to fostering athletic talent among underprivileged youth.

The Hungarian Summit event held in Daytona Beach, Florida on May 23-24 featured a gala dinner and a spirited auction where these sports relics were auctioned off for the first time. Thanks to the generosity of bidders and donors, one foster care youth has already secured a spot in the Hungarian-American Sports Scholarship Program for the summer of 2025.

Participants will spend a month at DME Academy, founded by sports enthusiast and entrepreneur Mike Panaggio. The academy not only emphasizes sports development but also uses sports as a tool for social integration, building confidence, and fostering perseverance. Young athletes from around the world attend DME Academy, making it a truly inclusive and supportive environment.

The auction is ongoing, with sports memorabilia and artworks available for bidding on charityforfriendship.com until December 20. Your support through bidding or donations will help more talented and diligent youth pursue their dreams through this life-changing opportunity.

Join us in making a difference and helping these young athletes achieve their American dreams through sports!
