Lively music will electrify the atmosphere as partygoers dance across the ballroom to the sounds of Joey Scott & the Connection, Boston’s premier party band. Greek music will be by Orfeas.
“The Mistletoe Ball is a wonderful opportunity to launch the holiday season with family and friends while contributing to the EOK’s established charities,” says Felicia Kiehm, Chair of this year’s black-tie event.
For the first time, the Ball this year will feature a Best of Boston Raffle featuring six lavish prizes. First prize is a cultured pearl necklace donated by DePrisco Jewelers. Other gifts include a Red Sox package for four, a Museum of Fine Arts Classical Tour for six, and hotel stays in the Boston area. Guests are invited to purchase a chance to take home the prizes.
This year’s gala will also feature Mistletoe Mingle, the third annual after-party for young adults, who will dance to the music of DJ Chris Ioakimidis of The Salonica Boys. The after-party will be held in the Ballroom Foyer from 10:30 pm until 2:00 am. Proceeds from the after-party will benefit Rosie’s Place and Pine Street Inn, which are both Hellenic Women's Club, Inc., EOK established charities. Guests who wish to attend only the Mistletoe Mingle may make reservations at Eventbrite.com. Admission to the Mingle is $30 for one, $50 for two, and free for attendees of the Mistletoe Ball.
The Hellenic Women’s Club Scholarship Fund, established in 2011, will award seven young women a $5,000 scholarship. Each is based on community service, leadership, and academics. All scholarship recipients will be recognized on the evening of the Ball.
The Mistletoe Ball first began in 1946 as a $6-per-ticket event to raise funds to help war-torn Greece. Proceeds from that event made it possible to ship clothing, medicine, bandages, and food to the Greek War Relief effort. Today, the ball is a highly anticipated annual social event, drawing guests from across New England and beyond.
