DELMAR, NY – Troy, NY AHEPA Chapter 306, Schenectady, NY – AHEPA Chapter 125, and Albany, NY AHEPA Chapter 140 jointly held their inaugural Eleftheria Capital Region AHEPA Golf Outing on June 12 at Normanside Country Club in Delmar. More than eight months of planning by the Golf Committee resulted in a rousing success as 130 players on 33 teams competed for the championship trophy on a gorgeous, sun-kissed afternoon. The players enjoyed a fun-filled day of fellowship, great food, wonderful prizes, and challenging golf. The dinner banquet, which featured the raffle drawings of 80 donated gifts, was attended by over 160 people.

The sold-out golf outing raised thousands of dollars for the Capital Region AHEPA Chapter scholarship funds and Ronald McDonald House Charities of the Capital Region. The outing received the overwhelming support of the business community of the Capital Region with dozens of sponsorships and donations. Planning is already underway for the 2nd Annual Capital Region AHEPA Golf Outing in 2020.

  1. Greece is dying, but disapora greeks barely raise a penny, As not being in greece and being citizens of other countries I do believe that our loyalties should be in the country we live in for Greeks in that particular country from Churches to Greek community help, but also to the greater community greek or not…But a portion at least in this case 25% should be for greece even if no crisis the need was, is and will always be there, and I am talking major funds not $3,000 – $10,000 gifts? But $100’s of millions to over an amount of $1,300.000.000 Billion is needed yearly forever to keep greece going…sounds crazy, sounds like alot, but with greeks in America, Canada, Australia, Now even more in Western Europe, $1.3b is not too far of a reach.. $500. – $1,000 a year per greek baby, youth, adult…all these greek organizations don’t do enough..spend too much on lame parties, awards for this and that yet greece suffers, who cares who is the best Greek Doctor or Restaurant Owner in New York? Does that deserve a dinner and waste of money.. Other groups in America raise 100’s of millions yearly for their ancestral birth nation, without a blink of an eye…Sorry golf, award banquets etc are Anti-Greece….New organizations are at this moment being created and will fill this need and take over the real work…Go play golf and pretend your helping.
