What We Do as the hellenic women’s club

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.
