A Night of Honor: A Celebration of All Who Shine
06/04/2015

The PanHellenic Scholarship Foundation is extremely excited for our annual Awards Gala which is quickly approaching on Saturday, June 20th, 2015.  From an amazing array of our “best and brightest” Greek-American students, to our Paradigm Award recipient, ultramarathonman Dean Karnazes, we are looking forward to a night of honor and brilliance.  

 

As a non-profit organization that has benefited hundreds of Greek-American students with over $2.3 million worth of scholarships, we believe and promote one of the most profound roots in Hellenic tradition, which is education's role in the development of civilization. With a great sense of Hellenism, our mission is to see students become proactive, engaged, and enlightened citizens as a way to benefit society as a whole. 

 

Krystal White, actress, producer, writer, and Emcee of our annual Awards Gala, is an example of this. Krystal White, who lived part of her life in Greece, is excited and honored to be part of this year's Gala as she states, “I have the blood of a culture that gave birth to theater and to the Olympics running in my veins. Greece may be having its struggles now, but the history of this country will forever be remarkable and important. It's an honor to be a part of that. I am also incredibly honored to be invited to the Gala, and I'm excited to be part of such a wonderful event for such a GOOD cause!”

 

We are fortunate to have Ms. White as our Emcee. She is a delightful young lady who possesses all the traits for this assignment to everyone's pleasure and entertainment,” said Chris P. Tomaras, Founder and Chairman of the Foundation.  

 

With great support from our benefactors, Mr. Chris P. Tomaras is also proud that as a non-profit organization we are able to host an event where hundreds of guests will be amongst thriving and successful individuals while enjoying a night of dinner, dancing, and the chance to win $10,000!   

 

We invite you to come participate in a night of celebrating our honorable Hellenic roots with an emphasis in education and determination. We are proud to support these amazing individuals and are looking forward to honor them on Saturday, June 20th, 2015 at our annual Awards Gala.
