Photo Tour 2019

On March 16, 2019, the Greek American Heritage Society of Philadelphia held their 5th Annual Photo Tour/Exhibition called “AXIA- A Celebration of Extraordinary Greek American Women.”

It was a spectacular evening of entertainment and hors d’oeuvres held in the Stotesbury Mansion, one of the grand iconic buildings in Philadelphia.

We honored and celebrated the extraordinary women of our community who have steadfastly contributed to our rich Hellenic heritage–women of resilience, courage, dignity, and creativity, who excelled in Commerce, Philanthropy, Medicine, Arts, Education and more over the last one hundred years.

Approximately ninety women from all walks of life were honored with biographies and photographs supplied by their peers, friends, and families. A film presentation summarized the experiences of these gifted and giving women who contributed to the cultural richness of the Greek American community in the Philadelphia area.

This annual event was initiated to encourage the community to preserve their history, celebrate their rich culture, and preserve it for future generations.

The generous support we received from the community will greatly help our overall goal of continuing to bring these types of programs and educational events to our community, and inspire future Greek American generations to continue our mission, documenting, promoting and preserving our Hellenic heritage.

Although the event has concluded, we encourage those interested in this, or any of our previous “Photo Tours,” to continue to submit their photographs and other materials to the digital library that GAHSP continues to build. Your stories will contribute to building and defining our community while showing how the Greeks of Philadelphia and the Greater Delaware Valley have contributed to the making of America.
