The Hungarian Cultural Society of Connecticut (HCSC) is an association of citizens of Connecticut of Hungarian ancestry. The society’s goal is to preserve the Hungarian cultural heritage in America. It also supports ethnic Hungarian minority populations in the Transylvania region of Romania and the Carpathian basin. HCSC funds its program entirely through charitable donations. The society’s main fund raising event is the annual Gala Dinner. This festive celebration of Hungarian culture, history and heritage is held in the fall.
