Hellenic community celebrates 80th anniversary in true Greek Fashion

The Hellenic Community of Port Elizabeth celebrates their 80th anniversary this year and who knows how to party better than the Greeks? Saturday, 15 October is an evening at the Hellenic Hall that you don’t want to let pass you by.

At R300 per person, the Community invites the public to join them for an evening of top class entertainment who will be flown in especially for the anniversary. This festive and authentic entertainment will include live Greek singing by the beautifully talented Rosanna Delenta and bouzouki player, Mella who have the gift to bring any party to life. Guests will also be treated to a deliciously prepared three course meal.

Further entertainment includes Greek dancing performed by Mary Vassiliou Dance Group from a studio held in the highest of standards. The group will showcase dances from Mainland Greece, Cyprus and the Island of Crete. Vassiliou sadly passed away in 2015, but her legacy continues through several dancing schools where old pupils serve as teachers and administrators. The celebration of Greek dancing in South Africa persists through these schools that currently have around 300 students.

If you’re worried about what to do with the kiddies for the evening, the Community has you covered. Children will be looked after by hired babysitters in The Delphi Hall (on the same premises) for R50 where they’ll watch DVD’s and be given scrumptious hamburgers for dinner.

Don’t miss out on what promises to be the most festively Greek evening of the year. For more information please contact Persi on 072 212 7423 as bookings are essential.
