GREEK AID 07 in NY for Greek Fire Victims THIS SUNDAY

I admit to having a one-track mind of late considering the devastation that hit our homeland. So much so that I am now part of a group named GREEK AID, a non-for-profit organization founded in the shadow of these fires to help fire victims and other Greeks who need support.
Come join us THIS SUNDAY at 5 p.m., September 23rd in Athens Square in Astoria, Queens where we will rally to show our support for the fire victims.

In addition to local dance groups, we are honored to announce the following who will be attending and showing their support:

- Peter F. Vallone Jr., City Council Member
- Gus Karalekas, World Council of Hellenes Abroad (SAE)
- James Kalamaras, VP Hellenic Federation of NY
- Eleni Gage, Journalist and author of 'North of Ithaka'

As of today, we know that Assemblyman Michael Gianaris will try to attend.
Following the rally, a number of local businesses have opened their doors to allow GREEK AID to collect donations. Please stop by to support them (and GREEK AID) for their contribution. They include:

Many thanks to Daily Frappe, who promoted the rally and will be with us in spirit!

GREEK AID is a non-for-profit organization whose mission is to raise money to aid Greeks affected by natural disasters and those needing assistance due to serious medical conditions. Once raised, GREEK AID aims to deliver the maximum support to those in need by securing the method of delivery with the least administrative cost.
