Fun Evening of Painting, Laughter, Hungarian Food and Friendship!

August 20, 2013

Fun was had by all, especially by one individual who had won painting lessons and a Hungarian dinner with the Makks.
She had attended the American Heart Associations Heart Ball at the Sheraton Waikiki!

Eva takes over as things get more difficult. Our guest really yearned for the likeness of her dog in the painting.

The painting is coming along.....

and coming along. Yes, said doggy had blue eyes.

Excitement was growing as the painting unfolded!!!


The Hungarian dinner included noodles, chicken paprikas, lecso (a hot vegetable dish consisting of sauteed onions, tomatoes, bell peppers seasoned with paprika), cabbage and cucumber salad (with sour cream and garlic). Delicious!!!!

Pam Campbell from the American Heart Association with her lovely daughter brought the scrumptious cake!!!!

After painting, eating and stories about the Makk family adventures and accomplishments, we took a final photo in front of "American Epic", a painting painted and signed by Eva, Americo and A.B. A true masterpiece!

A fun evening was had by all!!!!!

It's rare to have the opportunity to watch Eva Makk paint. Here she is painting for the pleasure of the Hope Ball attendees. Someone loved this painting so much, they bought it right then and there. A portion of the sale will go to the Cancer League of Colorado.

"Love and Hope", the oil painting created and donated by Eva Makk,
was auctioned off in the live auction during the Hope Ball.

More photos to come. If you were at the ball and have photos to share, please contact us through our website.

MAKK Documentary In Progress!

We are excited!!! Among so much on our plate (or should I sat palette) we have agreed to embark on a project to digitally record the Makk story. It will take months for the final product to appear as there is still so much more to record and then edit. Credits go to Dr. Istvan Szapudi videographer and Andi (Lilikoi) Gaspar. (

Here are some "in progress" photos. More to come!
