This special event was made possible through the generous support of sponsors who covered all expenses, meaning all proceeds from ticket sales and donations will go directly towards the purchase and distribution of food for families in Greece.

“We are incredibly grateful to everyone who made this event possible,” said Dr. Efthymios Daniskas, a member of the Ss. Nicholas, Constantine and Helen community. “The sponsors, donors, and attendees all played a crucial role in its success. Thanks to their generosity, approximately 480 families will receive food for their Greek Easter table this year.”
