Sydney University Greek Society to celebrate 65th anniversary


The Sydney University Greek Society (SUGS) is celebrating its 65th anniversary this year with a ball on Friday, March 10 at Le Montage in Lilyfield, Sydney from 6.30pm.

The 65th anniversary celebrations mean SUGS is Australia’s oldest university Greek society.

On the night, attendees will be able to celebrate this momentous occasion with live entertainment, great food, unlimited beer, wine and soft drinks, and even better company.

People will also spend the night dancing away to Greek music by FiloXenia band.

President of SUGS, Kosta Plegas, told The Greek Herald it’s a very special moment to be celebrating “the rich history” of SUGS with an anniversary ball, and he’s proud “to be a small part of the Society’s long history.”

“The Society has a long history with engaging the Greek Australian youth of Sydney and this is yet another opportunity for people of our community to come together and celebrate a staple of the Greek Australian landscape,” Kosta said.

“Our Anniversary Balls only happen every five years, so it is a very special occasion for the Society to be celebrating in 2023.”

Kosta said the event is open to all members of the community, whether you are a current or former student, a sponsor, or a fan of the continuation of the Greek culture and language.

“I absolutely can’t wait for the Ball and hope that the Greek community in Sydney will join us in a very special celebration,” he concluded.

The Sydney University Greek Society’s 65th Anniversary Ball will be held on Friday, March 10 at Le Montage (38 Frazer St, Lilyfield, 2040) from 6.30pm – 11pm.
