On Saturday, September 15, 2012, Plato Academy will host their 2nd Annual Greek Americans Against Breast Cancer Gala. We know this event will continue to bring Breast Cancer Awareness to our community and will provide a voice for individuals and loved ones affected by breast cancer.
Plato Academy has passionately supported Breast Cancer Research and has been actively involved in conveying the message of community involvement for a generation. That passion for involvement deepened when our principal, was diagnosed with Breast Cancer. We supported our principal through her struggle and, driven by a stronger mission, held our first Greek Americans Against Breast Cancer event.
We have named “A Silver Lining Foundation” as the breast cancer charity for this year’s event. We are pleased to announce Emmy-winning breast cancer survivor and founder of A Silver Lining Foundation Dr. Sandy Goldberg as our guest speaker. The event will be held at the new National Hellenic Museum, “the first and only major museum in the country dedicated to the Greek journey, from ancient times to the modern Greek-American experience,” which just opened in Chicago this past December. Stay tuned for more information, details regarding the silent auction and additional guest speakers — we hope to see you there!
