CALIFORNIAN GO!: Greek glendi to take place at Temecula winery in Temecula
in USA, West Coast
The American Hellenic Educational Progressive Association Chapter 536 of Temecula and the Daughters of Penelope in the Temecula Valley will host their annual celebration from 11 a.m. to 7 p.m. Oct. 15 at Mount Palomar Winery.
Called a "glendi," the event is first and foremost a celebration, and the Greek-American groups are inviting the community to join them.
The menu will be prepared by Mount Palomar executive chef John Housotter, and will be accompanied by plenty of wines and Greek desserts. There will be coffee readings, international music performances and, of course, dancing.
AHEPA 536 will be honoring George Koulaxes with the Homer Award, an appreciation of the education of the people. Koulaxes is the founder of the Hellenic Cultural Society in San Diego.
All money raised by the event will go toward the groups' philanthropic efforts, including scholarships and financial aid.
Mount Palomar Winery is at 33820 Rancho California Road, Temecula. Tickets are $28 for adults and $15 for children 12 and younger. Tickets are $35 on the day of the event.
