George Siamboulis, President of Pan Gregorian Enterprises, Inc. and James Logothetis, President of PGEI of USA Charitable Foundation, Inc. will be this year’s honorees of the 23rd Ronald McDonald House New York, Greek Division’s Annual Christmas Dinner, to be held on Monday, December 10, 2018 at the New York Athletic Club,180 Central Park South, New York City.
Spiros Maliagros, Chairman of the Greek Division, asking the community to participate at the event, says that Ronald McDonald House New York is “where hope has a home” for pediatric cancer patients and their families battling aggressive, recurring and rare childhood cancers. Ronald McDonald House New York is the largest house of its kind in the country with 95 rooms providing shelter and programs for children and their families. Families come from around the world seeking their child’s best hope for survival, whether a family stays for a few days, several months or even a year.”
The Greek Division of Ronald McDonald House New York began in 1979 with the partnership of two friends who shared a dream: to support children and families suffering through the trials of pediatric cancer treatment. Since then the House has served over 10,000 Greek families battling pediatric cancer. The Greek community over the years has responded in immeasurable ways in return to keep the dream alive and raise funds for ALL NEEDY KIDS.
The children staying at Ronald McDonald House New York are kids first, and kids with cancer second – and they should experience all the joys of childhood. Ronald McDonald House New York not only caters to the needs of the child, but also parents and siblings. Ronald McDonald House New York is truly a home for the whole family. For the past 39 years, children with cancer have been fortunate to have Ronald McDonald House New York to come home to after a day of chemotherapy, radiation or surgery.
“Your help will make the dinner a wonderful success and benefit the children of Ronald McDonald House New York”, Maliagros says.
