St. Michael’s Home to Honor Efstathios & Stamatiki Valiotis
St. Michael’s Home announced that its 2016 Annual Name Day Gala will be held on Sunday, November 13th, 2016 at the Metropolitan Club in Manhattan (NY). Serving as Chairperson of this year’s gala is Board of Trustee member, Mrs. Efthalia Katos. The event will begin with a 4 o’clock reception, followed by seating at 5 o’clock for a sumptuous dinner, awards program, music and dancing.
This year’s gala is not only an evening of fellowship, but an occasion to celebrate the quality care which the Home has offered the elderly of the community, as well as to raise the needed funds for our Expansion. At this year’s event, they are launching our Capital Campaign to raise the necessary funds to completely transform the Uniondale property purchased in 2014 into a state-of-the-art continuum care Greek Orthodox facility!
In conjunction with the Gala, St. Michael’s honors a distinguished member of the Greek Orthodox Community who embodies and promotes the finer qualities and traditions of our Faith and heritage. This year’s recipients of the 2016 Archangel Michael Award are Efstathios & Stamatiki Valiotis.
Mr. Valiotis is the founder of Alma Realty Corporation which owns and manages over 15,000 apartments of market and affordable housing properties in the Metropolitan area. In 1989, Mr. Valiotis, along with several other investors, formed Marathon National Bank, later establishing Alma Bank, in which he serves as chairman of the Advisory Board. Proud parents and grandparents of three children and two grandchildren, Efstathios and Stamatiki have been generous supporters and benefactors of many parishes, schools and other worthy causes here and in Greece. Their unwavering commitment to our Faith and culture make them well-deserved recipients of this award and we are most proud to acknowledge their accomplishments.
