34th HACCI Awards to recognise excellence within Greek Australian community

·

Marking the award presentation’s 34th year of operation, the Hellenic Australian Chamber of Commerce and Industry presents its annual Awards tomorrow night to the best and brightest of the Greek community.

The annual ceremony is the highlight of the Hellenic Australian social calendar, an opportunity to celebrate excellence, to acknowledge contribution, to applaud innovation, business acumen and the significance of entrepreneurship as an integral factor and a binding element of our community.

In a year marked by unprecedented circumstances, the HACCI Awards were also inevitably affected. Due to COVID19 restrictions, the renowned annual Gala Ball could not take place, however in the true spirit of innovation, HACCIs was quick to adapt and the annual Awards are taking place as a glorious digital ceremony – and everyone is invited to attend.

Hosted at the Hellenic Museum, the digital ceremony will be streaming live into people’s screen of choice.

Following up on last year’s success, HACCI welcomes back Mary Coustas – and her larger-than-life alter ego, Effie Stephanides – to assume the role of MC for the second time. She will be joined by a select group of community leaders who are going to present the 2020 HACCI Awards to this year’s recipients.

The night has always included top-class entertainment, and this year is no different.

Showcasing their talents will be Gadjo Dilo, presenting their signature gypsy-swing take on beloved Greek songs, from the rooftop of Gazarte, under the Athenian night sky adorned by the vision of the magnificent Acropolis.

Fivos Delivorias, arguably the most significant singer-songwriter of his generation, will send a very special musical message to the Greek Community, the Chamber, and a special person among us.

Back in Melbourne, the Chris Frangou trio will present classic Greek melodies, through a jazz prism.
