NHS Celebrates OXI Day With Casino Night Fundraiser for Heritage Greece Program
On October 28th 1940, Greek prime minister Ioannis Metaxas said: “OXI” (NO) to an ultimatum made by Italian Prime Minister Benito Mussolini, which then led to the Greco-Italian War. Oxi Day represents Greeks' resilience, passion, dedication, and will to live freely, to honor their ancestors' sacrifices and preserve their culture.
On Oxi Day 2022, over 130 members of the Greek-American community gathered at Woodside Country Club, in Syosset, NY for a poker fundraiser, a rich dinner and drinks and a celebration of our Hellenic Heritage. The evening was hosted by the NHS New York Heritage Greece Initiative and the NHS NY Chapter Committee and Sponsors.
