Karabotses Honored at Federation Gala on Eve of Philly Greek Parade

CHERRY HILL, NJ – On April 17, the eve of the Greek Independence Parade in Philadelphia, Greek-Americans and Philhellenes gathered at the Danielle Kousoulis Center of the St. Thomas Greek Orthodox Church in Cherry Hill, NJ – a Philadelphia suburb – to join the Federation of Hellenic American Societies of Philadelphia and the Greater Delaware Valley in bestowing its Eleftheria Medal upon Nicholas Karabots and his wife, Athena.
