On Friday, November 10, the National Hellenic Society held its Heritage Greece Fundraiser in New York at the beautiful Strathmore Vanderbilt Country Club! Over 200 people attended to support and contribute to this life-changing program that gives 100+ students the opportunity to travel to Greece and explore their culture and heritage. Congratulations to our big winner Argyris Argitakos!

NHS announced a $10 million Program Endowment campaign to demonstrate NHS' commitment to promote and pass on Hellenic heritage to the next generation.
NHS Vice-Chair of NHS' Board, Lea Soupata and Lea's husband, Sotiris Zervoulias pledged $1 million towards the $10 million Program Endowment goal. Lea and Sotiri's pledge serves as a commendable act of philanthropy reflecting their dedication to supporting Greek heritage and education.
NHS Chair, Drake Behrakis stated, "NHS is driven to serve our community as a beacon of excellence as we advance our vision to pass on Hellenism's torch to the next generation through our work and impactful programs. We see change in our demographic as opportunity, not a threat. Lea's gift is not just a financial contribution, but a heartfelt investment in the potential of every student that participates in the Heritage Greece Program as we strive to have them take our place one day as Hellenic heritage ambassadors."
