Shrine AHEPA Chapter 500 Supports the Special Needs Community

GREENLAWN, NY – The Special Needs Valentine Social Dance Party took place on February 26. The venue was the New York Fitness & Boxing located in East Northport, NY. Thanks to the support of the Shrine AHEPA Chapter 500 brotherhood, the exciting night featured live DJ music, party lights, prizes, games and tons of pizza. The event raised enough money to cover its expenses which will be put towards the next Special Needs social gathering.

“Typical” young people have a social life with their peers. What most don’t realize is that this community doesn’t have as many opportunities to get invited or to be included in social gatherings and events. It was great to see this young community have a fun and carefree experience at this dance social. The chapter shared a special thanks to the following Chapter brothers, President Edwin Rivera for hosting the event, John Mandalios as DJ, Vice President Nick Monogioudis for generously donating the drinks, Isaac Rivera and Nick Moutselos for their support. Finally, the chapter thanked Silvio Capoccia from Babylon Chapter 416 for his cash donation.
