Diagoras Athletic Group of Mesaria in Ikaria, Greece needs your help
The Brotherhood recently received a request from the Diagoras Athletic Club in Raches seeking financial assistance. Diagoras was established in 1933 and its mission is to provide athletic opportunities to the youth in western Ikaria. Today the athletic club sports 9 divisions for boys and girls. Just this year, the girls' soccer team accomplished a huge feat by becoming Greek National Champions in their league. Congratulations to them and their coaches!
However, aside from all Diagoras' accomplishments, there is a real need to help them continue their mission. Team coaches are all volunteers, but the cost of equipment, uniforms and participating in athletic events and travel are astronomical. The municipality of Ikaria cannot provide sufficient funding due to the current economic crisis. Diagoras is struggling to find ways to cover expenses through funding from athletes, parents and friends.
The Brotherhood believes that it is important for Diagoras to continue its mission of providing athletic opportunities for youth living in Ikaria. The Supreme Lodge is beginning a fundraising drive, beginning immediately, to help raise money for this good cause.
Please help by sending in an individual donation. We also urge each local chapter of the Brotherhood to make a chapter donation and/or host a fundraiser for this worthy cause. We hope you can lend your support for this worthy cause! Two methods of donations are accepted:
