September 29, 2022

FLUSHING, NY – The Gus Cherevas Estia-Pindus AHEPA Chapter 326 hosted its 8th Annual Cigar Night Fundraiser at Terrace on the Park on September 22. Once again it was a great success, thanks to the event sponsors and guests. This year’s causes were Ronald McDonald House Charities Greek Division, as well as St. Nicholas Greek Orthodox Shrine Church.

Some of the many dignitaries in attendance were AHEPA Supreme President Jimmy Kokotas, Chairman of the Board of Trustees Nicholas A. Karacostas, Executive Director Basil Mossaidis, and District 6 Governor Dean Moskos.

This year was especially rewarding for the hosting chapter. The Community Service Award was presented by Supreme President Kokotas to the entire Chapter body “in appreciation and recognition for our exemplary service, distinguished contributions, steadfast dedication and charitable endeavors that have promoted and maintained the high ideals of the Order of AHEPA: Philanthropy, Education, and Civic Responsibility.” The Chapter thanked Kokotas and AHEPA for this recognition and pledged to continue their service to AHEPA and our community.

The Gus Cherevas Estia-Pindus Chapter 326 has raised over $285,000 in the past eight years, and has generously donated to great causes such as the St. Nicholas Church and National Shrine at the World Trade Center, the purchase of two Service Dogs for Veterans with PTSD, the making of the documentary film Lethal Nationalism, Genocide of the Greeks, Ronald McDonald House, St. Nicholas Church in Flushing and its Youth Programs, Scholarships, and other worthwhile causes.
