The Annual Awards Ceremony & Gala is Less Than a Week Away!


Chicago, IL - The PanHellenic Scholarship Foundation is excitedly preparing for the annual Awards Ceremony and Gala, which will take place this Saturday, June 18, 2016 at the Ritz-Carlton, Chicago. The event will be held in honor of our Founder, the late Chris P. Tomaras, and will also celebrate the achievements of the 2016 PanHellenic Scholarship Award recipients. This year's recipients are among the best and brightest Greek-American students in the nation, selected from hundreds of scholarship applications. These undergraduates will collectively receive an impressive $250,000 in awards. We are looking forward to honoring such exceptional and accomplished students!


The Foundation is also thrilled to honor John S. Koudounis, Chief Executive Officer of Calamos Investments, who is one of the most prominent leaders in finance, and who was once the youngest CEO on Wall Street. Our guests will enjoy the evening as it is hosted by our lively and energetic Mistress of Ceremonies, Kiki Vale, a writer, public speaker, and broadcast personality. The Awards Ceremony will be followed by dinner, dancing, and entertainment by the Chris Sarlas Orchestra. You also have the chance to win $1,000, $5,000, or $10,000 by purchasing raffle tickets!


The Foundation is always excited and honored to bring together the Greek-American community for a night to celebrate our students. This year's sold-out event is bound to be a great success, as well as a momentous and meaningful tribute to our Founder, Chris Tomaras.
