Brooklyn AHEPA Chapter 41 Upholds Tradition with Informal Golf Day

November 23, 2020

BROOKLYN – Several brothers from Brooklyn AHEPA Chapter 41 gathered for a fun day of golf on November 7 at Brigantine Golf Links, near Atlantic City, NJ. The golf outing was followed by dinner at the private chefs’ table at the Old Homestead Steak House located in the Borgata Hotel Casino & Spa.

Unfortunately, due to the COVID-19 pandemic the chapter was unable to sponsor the Tenth Annual Golf Outing in early May which is normally held at Dyker Beach Golf Course in Brooklyn. The annual event continues to grow each year. To date it has raised over $200,000 for the Brooklyn Greek Orthodox communities of Saints Constantine & Helen Cathedral, Holy Cross, Kimisis Tis Theotokou, and Three Hierarchs. It also funds Brooklyn 41 annual scholarships for A. Fantis Parochial School, Hellenic Classical Charter School, as well as the afternoon Greek schools of Holy Cross and the Greek School of Plato.

The 2020-2021 officers are President John Liodakis, Vice President Stavros (Steve) Doukas, Secretary Spyros Loukakos, and Treasurer Peter Kontopirakis.
