Join us for an Illustrious Evening Honoring our PanHellenic Scholars

05/21/2015

 

Chicago, IL – The PanHellenic Scholarship Foundation is gearing-up for another exciting Awards Ceremony and Gala on Saturday, June 20, 2015. The Foundation expects 500+ supporters of its mission to converge at the Hilton Chicago to celebrate and applaud our 40 Scholarship Award Recipients. The event promises to be an enjoyable evening for all the recipients, their families and our guests in attendance, some of whom will be traveling from across the nation. This inspiring event promises to be a highlight of the summer. Call (312) 357-6432 to make your reservations or purchase your tickets online.

 

Attendees will have the opportunity to meet ultra-marathonman Dean Karnazes, our 2015 Paradigm Award honoree, and learn what motivates him during his special address to our recipients. Karnazes was named one of the “Top 100 Most Influential People in the World” by Time Magazine, and his accomplishments are a testament to the determination and dedication it takes to achieve success. Despite his many astounding accomplishments, awards and distinctions, he remains humbled and most proud of his philanthropic endeavors having raised millions of dollars for charity.

 

We are also thrilled to welcome our Mistress of Ceremonies, Krystal White, who is a Greek African-American involved in the film industry as an actress, writer and producer. She is proud of her Greek heritage and appreciates the translation of the human connection from paper to the widescreen. She discovered her love for film while on the set of Harry Potter, and has also worked on the set of the blockbuster film, Mamma Mia!

 

Our guests will be entertained by the sounds of the 10-piece Chris Sarlas Orchestra. With over eleven years of experience, the Chris Sarlas Orchestra is sure to have everyone on the dance floor with traditional Greek hits as well as pop classics.

 

In addition to an uplifting evening, you could walk away with our $10,000 Raffle Grand Prize!  The Foundation is proud to offer $17,500 in cash raffle prizes throughout the evening. The price of one ticket is $25 or five tickets for $100. Purchase your raffle tickets here for your chance to win and help a Greek-American college student at the same time.

 

Our Chairman, Chris P. Tomaras,  has made a promise to double all donations over $1,000 until we reach our goal of $250,000! Take the Chairman's Challenge today and help an exceptional college student reach their full potential.
