evening in greece The 33rd annual Evening in Greece (EIG), a fundraiser for St. Andrew the Apostle Greek Orthodox Church, will be held from 5:30 to 10:30 pm on Saturday, October 19th. Following the success of the 12th annual San Luis Obispo Greek Festival that was held in June, here’s another chance to experience Greece without ever leaving the country!

EIG will be held at the Veterans Hall, 801 Grand Avenue in San Luis Obispo. This annual event has been St. Andrew’s way of showing the community the true meaning of Greek culture and hospitality.

Funds raised from this family-friendly event help provide for the community outreach programs that St. Andrew’s supports. Some of these community outreach programs include the SLO Noor Foundation, the Prado Day Center, and the SLO Food Bank.
