For 30 years, the Hellenic News of America has been your guide and companion to all things happening in the Hellenic community. We’re celebrating those 30 years with a Nov. 12, 2017, gala dinner and awards
reception featuring the Greater Philadelphia premier performance of Greek singer and musician Dimitris Basis, along with Aphrodite Daniel & Orchestra.
The gala will take place at The Merion, a catering, and events complex in Cinnaminson, New Jersey.
Keeping true to its mission of supporting charitable, educational and non-profit organizations, the Hellenic News will offer $5,000 of the proceeds from the gala, to three non-profit organizations--The Ronald McDonald House-Greek division of NY, the Greater Philadelphia Cancer Foundation and the MAGAF Scholarship awards.
Five outstanding Greek Americans will be honored for their contributions to American society and to the world. The honorees are Annapolis, MD Mayor Mike Pantelides, Dr. Marina Angel, a retired Temple law professor who has championed women’s rights; Nancy Papaioannou, president of Atlantic Bank, New York Community Bank; Dr. Michael G. Papaioannou, Deputy Division Chief at International Monetary Fund, philanthropist Eleni Bousis, Thomas P. Phiambolis, MD, Main Line HealthCare Physician and Markos Papadatos, power journalist. More names will follow.
The anniversary highlights decades of stories from the Hellenic News of America, covering the roots and passions of the Hellenic community, while perpetuating Hellenic principles and ideals. Founded in 1987, the newspaper successfully filled a void in the Greek community, giving them a voice, linking the Greek communities together, here at home and abroad.
As it celebrates its past, Hellenic News of America is adapting to the changing new media environment, with an active presence on social media and the web.
To sustain its commitment of informing and enlightening Hellenes, Hellenic News of America welcomes the support of the community through its gifts, subscriptions, and advertisements to the newspaper and to its annual business event, the Hermes Expo.
Only by working together can we continue to offer this vital service in the many years ahead.
Please plan to join us in the celebration and stick around for the next 30 years. The best is still ahead.
