HELLENIC EDUCATION AND LANGUAGE PROGRAM - Parent Teacher Organization
On behalf of the H.E.L.P. School P.T.O., I would like to thank you in advance for supporting our mission to improve the lives of our children, through this School. Since the inception of our school, the generous support of Mr. Athanasiades has provided a home for our program, at the Athanasiades Cultural Foundation.
We are deeply indebted to Mr. Athanasiades as he is the Honoree for the evening, a prime example of a Hellene giving back to the community with generosity and love.
We invite you to join us for gourmet appetizers and unlimited wine and beer, in the accompaniment of wonderful music provided by the talented Petros Klampanis. We are excited to include a silent auction with art from our students and a numerous selection of raffle prizes. The event is co-sponsored by Thymari Restaurant.
We will be happy to see you in person on April 28th and share with you more information and experiences of our program.
