ST NICHOLAS CHURCH 50th ANNIVERSARY FUNDRAISING GALA DINNER
Saturday, 28 October 2017 @ 6.30pm
Olympus Room, Hellenic Club Woden

This year marks the 50th anniversary of St Nicholas Greek Orthodox Church in Canberra. Our Church is planning improvement works to the Church building and invites you to a fundraising gala dinner on Saturday, 28 October 2017 at the Hellenic Club, Woden.
The St Nicholas Greek Orthodox Church is a significant piece of the Greek Community in Canberra, with family visits to church every Sunday, many of us being married in the Church and our children being christened, and sadly our family members farewelled after their passing. We look forward to many more family gatherings etc at our Church, but need your help to make sure we preserve the Church for those occasions.

Tickets $150 per person, with tables of 10 available.
The night includes a 3-course dinner, live entertainment, auctions and much more!

HELLENIC YOUTH CLUB BOUZOUKI NIGHT
Friday, 3 November 2017 @ 7pm
Hellenic Club, Woden (Olympus Room)

This year, for the third year in a row, the Hellenic Youth Club will be hosting another BOUZOUKI NIGHT and you’ve been invited!
The night will include a two-course meal with optional dessert, the well adored, live Greek band Aegean Groove (SYD), a performance by the Canberra Hellenic Dancers’ senior group Atalanti, a DJ and traditional flower throwing + plate smashing (along with other secret surprises), to provide an entertaining evening for all ages. By looking at previous years, we expect to have approximately 300 attendees and hope to see you there too! Something is a little different this year, however… Simply by attending this night full of drinking, eating and Greek dancing, you will also be donating to a charitable cause! This year, the HYC have decided to donate a large percentage of the night’s profits to the Kingston St. Nicholas Church in order to support their Church Restoration efforts. What more of a reason to attend!

Please Note: Thus far, this event has mainly been created to raise awareness of this upcoming event. Ticket prices and link to be uploaded soon.
