The 72nd Annual Dinner Dance sponsored by the Hellenic University Club of Philadelphia took place this month at the Lowe’s Hotel in Philadelphia.

The annual event brings together Hellenes of all ages for an evening of entertainment (music and dance provided by Atlantis of Philadelphia) and to recognize those who have achieved in the name of Hellenism.

The annual event is highlighted by the PAIDEIA Award, given to individuals in the pursuit of excellence. This year, the Hellenic University club honored two individuals, Irene Bald Romano, Ph.D., and David Gilman Romano, Ph.D. More than 100 people were in attendance.
