Gala

The American School of Classical Studies at Athens and Gennadius Library host their annual Gala to benefit the mission of the School. During our premier event of the year, 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. Experience an extraordinary evening of culture, education, and inspiration at a spectacular venue in New York City. The Gala provides an important source of funding for the School and its academic programming, excavations, outreach, publications, and research, as well as a wide range of free public lectures, exhibitions, concerts, and award-winning short films.
