The Omega Council proudly hosted the 2024 Greek Heritage Night in collaboration with the Boston Red Sox at Fenway Park on June 4, honouring the legendary Harry Agganis, known as "The Golden Greek."

This sold-out event drew an estimated 5,000 Greek Americans and aimed to support the Metropolis of Boston Camp Gym & Field House Project at the Saint Methodios Faith and Heritage Center.

The festive evening commenced with a Heritage Pregame Ceremony on Jersey Street, featuring vibrant performances by local Greek dance groups, including the Metropolis of Boston Dance Group, the Boston Lykeion Ellinidon, and others. Grammy-award-winning musician Dessa Kavrakis delivered a stirring rendition of the National Anthem, setting the stage for an unforgettable night.

The on-field ceremony recognized esteemed individuals such as Alpha Omega Council Chairperson Christos Chrisafides, President Paul Tsitsopoulos, and Greek National Baseball Manager Chris Demetral. Additionally, the Consul General of Greece in Boston, Honorable Symeon Tegos, and other distinguished guests were honored for their contributions to the Greek-American community.

Proceeds from the event, including ticket sales and donations, supported the Metropolis of Boston Camp Gym Field House Project, a vital initiative aimed at enhancing facilities for Greek American youth. The addition of the Field House and Gym will enable the camp to expand its offerings and accommodate more youth participants, further strengthening their Hellenic American roots.

Greek Heritage Night with the Boston Red Sox exemplifies the Alpha Omega Council's commitment to promoting Hellenism and fostering unity among Greek Americans across New England. Through these events, the council raises awareness and funds for charitable causes while celebrating Greece's rich cultural heritage.
