The Pancretan Association of Melbourne hosted a Fundraising Mother’s Day Tavern Night in honour of all the mothers of the Association on Saturday, May 27 at the Pancretan Members Pavilion. 

The event was organised and hosted by the newly elected Board of Management in April 2023, led by the President Aggie Mihelakis.

With over 150 members and their friends in attendance, the event was a success. The night was full of great food including traditional Cretan pilafi and live Greek music that had the youth and seniors up and dancing, to the early hours of the morning.

Mr Manoli Leondakis, Miss Aggie Mihelakis, Mr Papadimitraki, Mr Dermitzakis.

A plethora of great prizes were raffled on the night, kindly donated by wonderful people and friends of the Association.

All proceeds from the raffle will be going towards the Pancretan Junior and Intermediate Dance Group for their upcoming trip to Brisbane in early 2024 for the National Cretan Convention.

Special guests on the night included The Hon. Emmanuel Kakavelakis, Consul General of Greece in Melbourne, Mr. Athanasios Tsouhantaris, President of New Democracy in Australia, as well as representatives from the Cretan Brotherhood of Melbourne.

All mothers were gifted with a beautiful arrangement of flowers at the end of the night as a momento  and fitting tribute. Birthday celebrations were a hit with lifelong member Manolis Leontakis, who turned 80 years of age.

The Pancretan Association of Melbourne would like to thank all the members and Friends that attended, the Raffle Donors and all the volunteers for assisting on the night.
