The Hellenic Initiative Gala

Posted by  on

On the 30th September I headed over to the The Hellenic Initiative Gala. It was such an interesting event I wanted to share it with you all.

This is the 3rd annual gala event and this time it was held at 4 World Trade Center. Looking out from the 54th floor, the view was so amazing. I faced the newly built Freedom Tower and I could see the whole of Manhattan Island! This event was to raise money to help the country of Greece. I was there to also help coach Anastasia Zannis sing our American anthem, which is not an easy song to sing. Anastasia was singing both the Greek and American anthems at the start of the gala.

There were many speakers with Greek heritage including His Eminence Archbishop Demetrios of Americas, the CEOs of Coca Cola, Dow Chemical and not to be left out… the Prime Minister of Greece, Antonis Samaras! The Master Of Ceremonies were Emilia Bechrakis and Ryan Serhant (Stars of Bravo’s “Million Dollar Listing New York”),

I was definitely in the world of politics and high profile, corporate society!

 The Kids Are Alright!  Eddie Money and his fabulous wife Laurie @MET. We were waiting for the rest of their kids so we can go and have lunch there. Eddie had to leave to meet DJs Ken Dashow and Maria Milito. Great afternoon!  Everyone seeking shelter from the downpour. The Moodies will come back to finish the set after the rain stops.
 Forgot the sunglasses and riding on the ferry to CT. Memories crossing the Long Island Sound with John years ago.
