TORONTO, January 2013 – The Hellenic Heritage Foundation (HHF), a Toronto based charitable organization dedicated to the preservation, promotion and advancement of Hellenic education, culture and heritage in Canadian society, is honoured to welcome the new President elect – Mr. George Raios of Mr. Greek Restaurants.

Mr. Raios has served a key role on the Board, the Executive Committee and as Co-Chair of a number of Fundraising Committees, including the Annual Gala and Annual Golf Classic.
George’s philanthropic contributions have not only been recognized within the HHF but within the broader Canadian Community as well with the work he has undertaken through the HELIOS Charitable Foundation he created as part of the Mr. Greek franchise. In 2009, he was a Torchbearer for the 2010 Vancouver Winter Olympics.
He began Mr. Greek in 1988 as a small family restaurant on the Danforth and began franchising the concept in 1993 with a focus on freshness, quality, convenience, value and experience. Today, the same philosophy is used at all 22 locations across the Province.
The HHF congratulates Mr. Raios on his new post and looks forward to a promising year under his leadership.
