Over 75 people attended our annual gathering to cut the traditional vasilopita and enjoy an amazing networking opportunity, great food and dancing. This year The Merion hosted the venue with their famous food selections. A special thank you to the presidents of our fellow Hellenic Organizations – Nikitas Moustakas, Elias Iliadis, Nikolas Yantsos and George Papas.
