LONG ISLAND CITY, NY – In a festive atmosphere, Alpha Glass held its annual Christmas party on December 16 at its headquarters in Long Island City with family and friends in attendance to celebrate the season. Alpha Glass owner Antonis Farozes welcomed everyone to the party and spoke to The National Herald during the event.
He wished all the best to everyone for the holidays, peace and health for the New Year as well as for the Greek-American community to be more beloved amongst one another going forward.
Farozes, from the island of Kos, noted that the tradition of the Christmas party at Alpha Glass has been going on for 15 years and now he is pleased that his children are also helping.
Attendees enjoyed traditional Greek and Cypriot foods prepared by the Alpha Glass family, including Farozes’ wife Georgia who hails from Cyprus. A souvla was set up outside for roasting a whole lamb as well as other festive favorites while popular Greek music played in the background.
Everyone in attendance enjoyed the party and wished all the best for a Merry Christmas and Happy and Healthy New Year.
