Greek Fest will be donating funds to the Saanich Firefighter Burn Fund and the Tillicum Elementary School hot lunch program.
“It’s in our DNA to help those that need assistance,” said association vice president Jim Koutougos. “We are very fortunate to be living in Saanich. This is my favourite event of the year. What could be better than helping children?”
The festival will also be assisting with the hot lunch program by providing a Greek lunch for the students and staff at the school.
“We prioritize giving back and helping those in need,” said president Tim Petropoulos.
Greek Fest 2023 is taking place from Aug. 25 to 27 and Sept. 1 to 4. The event features Greek food, free live entertainment and more.
