Springfield, PA – A full day of golf on the greens brought these like-minded Greek-Americans and local businesses together. The event raised approximately $80,000, which will be used in part, to help members of the community in need.

In only its second year as an organization, Hellenic Hearts is making significant strides. “The board at Hellenic Hearts, introduced 15 new scholarships for high school graduates”, said Scholarship Program Director Tim Vlassopoulos. “We’re also looking to expand the EGP program, from being hosted at local churches, to a university in the area.”

The newly formed foundation hosted its first fundraiser this past Saturday evening at Estia Restaurant. Some 120 Hellenes, Philhellenes, and friends attended.
