Part of funding collected on that night will be disposed for the aid of the 2007 fire victims in Peloponnese. This charity event was decided for the following reasons:

  1. Front titles in media have faded away since the catastrophic fires last year but people in that area still need support
  2. It is the a perfect occasion to provide you with a detailed presentation in reference tothe aid, that you so generously offered one year ago (4th October 2007) during our previous event for the fire-stricken Greeks of Peloponnese.

For your information, please note the Hellenic Community of Ireland will not be organizing Christmas feast this year, but we are just about to finalize our ANNUAL DANCE for March 2009.

The President,

Dr. Thomae Kakouli
