The Hellenic American Chamber of Commerce Young Professionals (HACCYP) hosted their annual Gala on October 15, 2010 at New York City’s Pierre Hotel, in conjunction with their parent organization’s 62nd Annual Dinner Dance.

This year’s honoree was the inspirational and widely admired Sophocles Zoullas, President and CEO of Eagle Bulk Shipping Inc., the largest US based owner of Handymax dry bulk vessels. Zoullas made sure to make his way to the young professional’s gala and spoke eloquently about the importance of being a Greek-American and how it was their responsibility to help rescue Greece in its time of need. The HACCYP gala has proven to be the Greek-American crème de la crème event of the year, drawing in more than 200 attendees.

This elite group of young professionals are not all business, especially when it comes to having a good time. The dance floor was completely packed all night. How could it not be when entertainment included a special live performance by one of their favorite singers, Yanni Papastefanou, who was accompanied by DJ Bobby Karounos. The high energy crowd attracted the attention of the chamber’s dinner dance and soon its attendees were dancing and mingling with the young professionals. The celebration continued at Ammos Estiatorio where an after party was held.

HACCYP was formed a little over 3 years ago and serves as the first and leading Greek American Young Professionals organization in the country. The group has over 1,500 members and organizes monthly networking events at different venues throughout Manhattan. Their next event will be held at the celebrity studded New York City hotspot “Juliet Supper Club” located at 539 West 21st Street in NYC on November 18, 2010 at 7:00 pm. Admission is free and all are welcomed to attend.
