More than 3,000 guests gathered on the 14.5-acre West Kendall, Fla., campus to celebrate the schools’ Greek heritage through music, food and dance while raising funds to improve the schools’ technological resources. By the end of the evening, the schools raised a record $35,000, which will be used to update their wireless infrastructure and purchase computers for student use.
“I commend our faculty, staff, students and volunteer parents and board members for making this year’s event a tremendous success,” said Dr. George Kafkoulis, president and chairman of the Archimedean Schools. “As non-profit, tuition-free schools, we rely on these fundraisers to help us continue performing at the highest levels and maintaining equally high standards of education to ensure our students’ ongoing success.”
