Cleveland Hungarian Development Panel “Paprika! Diamonds of Science”



Paprika! — the major fundraiser for the Cleveland Hungarian Development Panel (CHDP) — took a scientific turn this year, and it was all centered around a multi-colored puzzle cube.

Presented in collaboration with The Great Lakes Science Center, “Diamonds of Science” paid tribute to famous Hungarian scientists and inventors, and in particular Ernö Rubik (yes, the creator of that teasingly frustrating game.) In a letter from Budapest, the professor greeted all, wishing them success with the event and thanking them for celebrating “Hungarian creativity and innovation.”

During remarks to the 150 guests in the Ritz-Carlton Ballroom, Kirsten Ellenbogan, Executive Director of the Great Lakes Science Center, announced a new exhibit coming in 2015: Beyond Rubik’s Cube. This is the 40th anniversary of Rubik’s Cube, “the ideal intersection of design, engineering and art.”

The evening was filled with Magyar music, compliments of Harmonia, delicious Hungarian food, and a silent auction that included Hungarian wines and art. Richard Saroko from the William Penn Association presented a check to continue the work CHDP does to strengthen educational and business ties between the U.S. and Hungary. And Carolyn and Jim Balogh were honored for their continuing support and hard work for the Hungarian community in Cleveland. STORY BY LINDA McMULLEN/PHOTOGRAPHS BY JOHN BASHIAN
