Order Your Baklava & Spanakopites Now!

The Ladies Philoptochos (Friends of the Poor) Chapter of the St. Christopher Hellenic Orthodox Church in Peachtree City held its third annual Valentines Tea-Luncheon Fundraiser last weekend.
Attendees were treated to a variety of American Indian teas, Greek appetizers and other delicacies. Entertainment was provided by Ali Ramsaier, who sang and accompanied herself on keyboard. Philoptochos Chapter President, Julie Skouteris, gave a brief introduction to the accomplishments of the chapter and how it serves local and international charities. All proceeds from the event will be given to charity.

The next fundraiser is the bake sale of Greek favorites: tiropites (cheese filo triangles, $6 per dozen), spanakopites (spinach and feta cheese filo triangles, $6 per dozen), and Baklava (layered filo, nut and honey dessert, $18 per dozen), all handmade by the members. To place an order, contact or call 770-487-1004 prior to Feb. 29th.
