2016 Hellenic Legacy GALA
The Greek American Rehabilitation and Care Centre held our Hellenic Legacy Gala on Saturday, November 19, 2016 at the Westin O’Hare Hotel in Rosemont, Illinois. Chairwomen, Vaciliki Ress and Kaliopi Apostolopoulos, along with advisor, Eleni Bousis, and their dedicated committee, outdid themselves once again this year with a beautiful and extravagant event. The Gala, which is the largest fundraiser of the year for the Care Centre was a great success and aptly demonstrated the love and loyalty that our community has for the Home and the residents.
Master of Ceremonies, Susanna Homan, Editor-In-Chief and Publisher of Chicago magazine, kept the evening flowing and entertained everyone with her charm and wit. The superior entertainment by world famous Glykeria, and the charismatic Kostas Karafotis, enamored the audience and rocked the room. The stage, sound and lights transformed the banquet room to an elegant atmosphere, and the entertainment kept everyone on the dance floor all night long. All this, plus great food, drink and camaraderie contributed to an enjoyable evening filled with “kefe”.
On behalf of the Gala committee, the Board of Directors, staff, volunteers and residents, we thank you, the Greek American Community for your continuous love, loyalty and support of your Home.
