Gala

The American School of Classical Studies at Athens and Gennadius Library host their annual Gala to benefit the mission of the School. This year marks the fifth year of our premier event, where we celebrate Greece’s rich heritage with the Hellenic world’s most influential leaders and scholars as well as honors those who have made significant contributions to the study of Greek culture. The Gala provides an important source of funding for the School and its academic programming, excavations, outreach, publications, research, and a wide range of free public lectures, exhibitions, and concerts.
