On May 10th, the Hellenic Times Scholarship Fund Foundation had their annual Gala at the Marriott Marquis Hotel in Manhattan where the foundation celebrated the exemplary achievements and the humanitarian efforts of their honorees: Michael Psaros, Mario Frangoulis and George Venizelos.
The foundation’s mission is to raise funds to provide scholarships for students, and 35 scholarships were awarded this past Saturday.
The Guest Artists who performed that evening were honoree Mario Frangoulis, Greek singing star Valantis and back by popular demand the one and only Sister Sledge featuring Kathy Sledge, who performed their classic hit "We Are Family." A crowd of almost 900 people attended the festive evening.
