New York City's Fordham University is holding a cocktail party benefit for its Orthodox Christian Studies Center, on Tuesday, June 17th.
It will be held in Tribeca's fine dining Greek restaurant, Thalassa. All proceeds of the evening will go towards supporting the Center's National Endowment for the Humanities Matching Challenge Grant: Enhancing Orthodox Christian Studies at the University.
This marks the cocktail party's second year at Thalassa, and gives participants the opportunity to converse with friends, meet new contacts and learn just what the Center is doing to advocate the historical significance, aesthetics and knowledge of the Orthodox religion.
Tickets are priced at $150 dollars per person, while young member tickets are $75 dollars. A tasting menu, cocktails, wine, live Greek music and more are offered throughout the event. Each guest will be given their own copy of Dialogue of Love: Breaking the Silence of Centuries, which documents last week's monumental meeting between Ecumenical Patriarch Varthalomeos and Pope Francis in Jerusalem.
