Experience an Evening in Greece (press release)


Popular Greek Dinner and Dance Celebration Set For October 19th

August 27, 2019

San Luis Obispo, CA – FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE


The 33rd annual Evening in Greece (EIG), a fundraiser for St. Andrew the Apostle Greek Orthodox Church, will be held from 5:30 to 10:30 pm on Saturday, October 19th. Following the success of the 12th annual San Luis Obispo Greek Festival that was held in June, here’s another chance to experience Greece without ever leaving the country!


EIG will be held at the Veterans Hall, 801 Grand Avenue in San Luis Obispo. This annual event has been St. Andrew’s way of showing the community the true meaning of Greek culture and hospitality.


A limited number of tickets is available, so be sure to order your tickets early, as this popular event repeatedly sells out. Ticket costs include $90 for adults, $35 for students or children, or $795 for a reserved table of 8 (preferred seating with 2 bottles of premium wine). Tickets can be purchased by either calling 805-546-8337 or by going to www.my805tix.com/events/EIG (a nominal fee is charged for tickets purchased online).


This family-friendly event is a fundraiser for St. Andrew that also helps provide for the community outreach programs that St. Andrew supports. Some of these community outreach programs include the SLO Noor Foundation, the Prado Day Center, and the SLO Food Bank.


Highlights of the event include:

• Delicious Greek dinner

• Live Greek music

• Performances by traditional Greek dance groups

• Dancing and dance lessons

• Silent auction

• Raffle

• Greek pastry sales
