CHICAGO, IL – Hellenic American Academy (HAA), one of the largest Greek-American educational institutions in the country will host their annual Gala on March 4, to celebrate 115 years of their Socrates School. The gala begins at 6 PM at the Hyatt Regency O’Hare Chicago, 9300 Bryn Mawr Avenue in Rosemont, IL.
Marking 115 years that Socrates School has provided academic excellence and the pursuit of lifelong learning to the Greek-American community, HAA is an evolution of similar visions and principles that started Socrates School; the passion to create a strong sense of community and promote the Greek heritage and faith.
“The universal principles of Hellenism enable students to understand the origins of democratic thinking, independent thought and the pursuit of lifelong learning. This approach is instrumental in producing worthy members of the community who will make it a place of respect and greatness,” said Jim Logothetis, HAA’s Chairman.
“The Academy sets its sights on continuing to redefine Greek American education for the modern era and as history has shown, the passion, strength and dedication from the community, the stars that guide us, is what makes the Academy successful,” said Effie Gountanis, HAA Executive Board and Gala Committee member.
The celebration will include a live performance by Greek entertainer, Konstantinos Nazis and Chicago local DJ Markos. Guests can also support the fundraising efforts with the onsite Casino for Cause and silent auction.
