2017 GABBY AWARDS IN NEW YORK CITY
The Gabby Awards is the Greek America Foundation’s signature biennial event. This year, guests will be taken on an emotional journey of the Greek experience in America from the arrival over a century ago at Ellis Island to our arrival at Carnegie Hall as one of the most important components of the great fabric of North American multiculturalism. Through our awards honoring Greek America’s Best and Brightest, as well as a beautiful collection of music, theatrics and vocal performances, the Gabby Awards at Carnegie Hall, followed by the official After Party at The Plaza hotel will continue to live up to its reputation as Greek North America’s premiere awards gala. All proceeds from the Gabby Awards benefit academic and humanitarian programs of the Greek America Foundation, including our award-winning Project Hope for Greece campaign.
