The annual Hellenic University Club of Wilmington Christmas Dance was memorable for so many reasons, not the least of which was how exciting the dance floor became when loads of dollar bills were thrown into the air as part of the Greek money dance.
Generations of supporters enjoyed the December 17th sold-out gala at Wilmington Country Club, which included more young adults than ever before, many of whom have been friends since childhood. The dinner dance is a much-anticipated gathering of friends and families of Greek decent, and those who wished they were.
“We couldn’t have been more pleased with the event!” said event co-chair Soula Mistras. “The young adults brought so much life to the party,” she remarked. The scholarship dinner dance is the most important fundraiser of the year, celebrating Greek culture, heritage and the scholarship program that the Hellenic University Club of Wilmington has supported since 1978.
After a lively cocktail hour – with drinks containing special holiday glowing ice – the 262 guests enjoyed a delicious Greek dinner at tables adorned with festive silver and red centerpieces. The evening included live music by Atlantis and DJ Craig.
“Everyone remarked on what a high-energy and beautiful evening it was,” said Stacey Bacchieri, who co-chaired the event with Mistras.
