The Demetra Fund

The EOK's Demetra Fund for Breast Cancer Research and Patient Assistance was established to honor our dear member, Demetra Samellas, who lost her life to a battle against breast cancer. Funds raised support breast cancer research and patient assistance.


EOK Scholarships

Each year, The Hellenic Women's Club awards $5,000 to deserving young women of Greek descent at The Mistletoe Ball in November. Recipients are awarded based on their academic merit, community service and leadership efforts.

EOK at the Celtics

"Greek Heritage Night" took place in Boston on Dec. 4, 2017 at a Celtics game. With over 2,000 Greeks in attendance, flags hung from the balconies as the national anthem was sung by Crete native Erin Toresaki. During the game, the "Heroes Among Us" award was presented to EOK member Dr. Athena Papas. This award is presented at each home game to an individual who has made "exceptional and lasting contributions to our community."
