In a true display of fraternal-sororal spirit, Daughters of Penelope Sparta Chapter 18 in Stockton, California, held a virtual bingo event on May 6, 2023, to raise money for an Ahepan from New York who battled cancer. Supreme President Jimmy Kokotas and DOP Grand President Georgette Boulegeris participated in fundraiser.
Brother Bobby Gemelas, of Port Jefferson Chapter 319, passed away on April 23, 2023, after a yearlong courageous battle with cancer. He was a valuable member of the AHEPA District 6 Lodge and left behind a beautiful wife, Samantha, and an eight- month-old daughter, Kalligrace. Over 500 bingo cards were sold to 85 players, making this the largest virtual bingo event they have hosted thus far. Proceeds from the event went to benefit Brother Bobby’s daughter. Donations are ongoing to support the future of Kalligrace and her education. For more information, please e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org
