Supporters of the Annunciation Greek Orthodox Cathedral turned out to for the Cathedral Ball.
Thanks to the support of one of the longest-standing Greek Orthodox communities in the country, the doors of the Annunciation Greek Orthodox Cathedral (1017 N. LaSalle) have been open since 1910. About 200 supporters turned out to the Chicago Cultural Center (78 E. Washington) Jan. 11 for the Cathedral Ball, held to help sustain the church. Greek-American journalist Anna Davlantes served as emcee and welcomed gala-goers, who enjoyed cocktails, hors d’oeuvres and a seated dinner. Later, guests danced to the traditional sounds of Chicago-based band Rythmos before bidding on silent auction items, including a wine tour in Napa Valley provided by Terlato Wines International, jewelry courtesy of Lester Lampert, a trip to Cancun and a Cubby Bear package. Proceeds raised benefited ministries and programs.
