The Hellenic Initiative Gala

Posted by  on 
October 8, 2015

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!

 Great to spend a few minutes with Paul before the show. He also sent his love to my kids .. Lara and Sebastian. How sweet. Thanks Paul for a great show.   Hanging out with Claudia at a Doo Wop show in Westbury. Can't wait to see my friend Lou Christie perform tonight.  Look who I found at Simon and Maria's wedding!?
 His tribute song to John HERE TODAY...nice.  Ashley Davie invited me down to a dinner with lots of Macca fans. A couple I knew. We were at Tony DiNapoli's having family style dinner. My favorite was the Eggplant Rollotini. I was glad I could make it as I sprained my foot and it was still painful. Thanks Ashley, I had a fun evening.  3 of my friends getting ready to jam at my Labor Day BBQ 2017. Mike Lefton from The Dives, Joe Bouchard (Blue Oyster Cult) and Dennis Dunaway (Alice Cooper.) if you didn't know, Joe and Dennis along with Albert Bouchard have formed a group called Blue Coupe. They are awesome!
 Lovely to hear BLACKBIRD.  At Maria and Simon Kirke's wedding, I met the former Police Commissioner Ray Kelly and his wife, Veronica. Lovely couple.  Haven't seen this couple, Andy Powell (Wishbone Ash) and his wife, Pauline, since the day of their wedding in England 45 years ago! Nice surprise!
