St. Agatha D. & D. - Raffle Draw

Last Sunday evening the Ladies’ Sisterhood of our Community, chaired by Mrs. Eva Christou, organised its Annual Fundraising Dinner and Dance in commemoration of its Patron Saint, St. Agatha, whose memory we commemorate in our Church on the 5th February.

Among the special guests of the event were His Eminence Chrysostomos the Metropolitan Bishop of Kition (Larnaka - Cyprus), His Grace the Bishop Nectarios of Arsinoe (Paphos - Cyprus), the Consul General of Greece in London Mr. Makis Pantzopoulos, members of the clergy, as well as Chairmen of Greek Communities and other Organisations.

The Secretary of our Community Dr. Panayiotis Procopiou welcomed everyone and then the Consul General of Greece and His Eminence had offered their kind greetings.

The event was well attended and supported by about 150 guests, who enjoyed delicious food, prepared by Andreas Georgiades and Yiannis Kyriacou, and nice live Greek music, played by George Gregoriou and Nikos Savvides.

During this D. & D. we had the Raffle Draw with a Smart car as its grand and only prize. The Raffle was greatly and widely promoted by the Chairman of our Community Mr. Pantelis Demosthenous.

The lucky ticket was drawn by His Eminence and the winning number is 219.

Winner of the car is Dr. Serafim Kiriakidis, who is the Chairman of the Parents’ Committee at our St. Panteleimon Hellenic College.
