2015 Greek Glendi

Guests of the Olmsted got their Greek on, joining the Hellenic Society on Feb. 6 for an elegant evening of Greek cuisine, fine dining, and dancing to live bouzouki music. The warm sun-kissed flavors of the Greek islands made winter disappear for an evening, as the glendi provided celebrants the tastes and sounds of Greece, without having to bring their passports. Live and silent auctions made the evening even more exciting.
