News Release: AHC Gala


American Hellenic Council’s Annual Awards Gala

The American Hellenic Council’s Annual Awards Gala is the hallmark event of the year for the Hellenic-American community of Southern California, bringing together hundreds of the most active Greek and Cypriot Americans to honor those who have made huge contributions to the Hellenic Cause in their various fields, including business, philanthropy, entertainment, and public service.

The 45th annual AHC Awards Gala was held on March 30th, 2019 at the Omni Hotel in downtown Los Angeles. The 45th AHC Annual Awards Gala is also the first Awards Gala without our founder, political activist and philanthropist, Aris Anagnos. As a community and as individuals, we mourn his loss, however, we also find strength and joy from our memories and experiences with him.
