Hundreds of Supporters Attend Greek Media Club Event Sponsored by the
PanHellenic Scholarship Foundation
On Thursday, October 13, 2011 the PanHellenic Scholarship Foundation
sponsored an event titled “Sports & Education Night”. Despite the Chicago
rain and wind, over 200 people came out for the exclusive event and enjoyed an entertaining evening. The event served to bring awareness to the Foundation’s objective of offering annual scholarships of a quarter of a
million dollars to high – achieving Greek American students.
Mr. Chris Tomaras, Founder and Chairman of the Scholarship Foundation
addressed the crowd and the importance of the Foundations’ efforts – which
inspired a surprise announcement from Ms. Staci Stratigakes, Assistant
Principal of Foreman High School, who pledged to match funds raised for the Foundation. A special guest of the evening was former Buffalo Bills Head Coach Marv Levy, who signed copies of his new book “Between the Lies” and took photos with fans. In addition, many Greek American media personalities and many guests were in attendance who enjoyed food, wine, and music until midnight.
The awareness event was organized by the Greek Media Club, headed by Terry Poulos and George Bliss who brought attention to the Foundation’s
fundraising efforts and mission. Event co-hosts included the Hellenic
Professional Society of Illinois, EuroCircle Chicago, and DailyFrappe.com,
along with co- sponsors George & Patty Loukas of The Cubby Bear Chicago. The event was held at the newly-opened Play18 Chicago, which is the Loop’s only upscale indoor golf facility boasting the latest in state – of – the – art golf simulators set in a country club atmosphere.
