Posted on September 30, 2013,2:19 am
The Hellenic Heritage Foundation is accepting nominations for the recipient of the 2014 Hellenic Heritage Foundation Lifetime Achievement Award.
This Award is presented annually at the Hellenic Heritage Foundation’s signature “A Night in Plaka” Gala to a distinguished Canadian of Hellenic descent or Philhellene who has demonstrated exemplary accomplishment in his or her respective career or field of endeavor and who, at the same time, has made our community a better place through community involvement, philanthropy or volunteerism.
The Award was launched in 2012. The first recipients of the Award were Supreme Court Justice Andromache Karakatsanis and the late Dr. Dimitrios Oreopoulos. In recognition of their outstanding leadership and achievements, the recipients were honoured by naming endowed scholarships in their names for Hellenic Studies at York University.
In 2013, the Hellenic Heritage Foundation presented the Award to Mike Lazaridis, philanthropist, global business leader and founder of BlackBerry. In honour and recognition of Mike Lazaridis’ exemplary accomplishments, the Hellenic Heritage Foundation and the Savvas Chamberlain Family Foundation contributed matching funds to create the Anaximandros Fellowship at the Perimeter Institute for Theoretical Physics in Waterloo.
Nominations can be submitted online from October 1, 2013 to November 30, 2013 using our designated website for the HHF Lifetime Achievement Award. For more information on the Award, the criteria for nomination and past recipients, log-on to: www.hhf.ca/nominate or contact George Keroglidis at firstname.lastname@example.org or at 416 447-7107.
The Lifetime Achievement Award provides an opportunity to recognize and celebrate the achievements of Canadians of Hellenic heritage or Philhellenes who demonstrate and advance the ideals of Hellenism. The Hellenic Heritage Foundation looks forward to receiving your nomination and invites you to celebrate the 2014 recipient at the June 6, 2014 Gala.
