On Sunday, April 30, 2017, the M.A.G.I.C. Mission held its annual luncheon and fundraiser at the Hellenic Community Centre, Adrian-Maris in the presence of the Honourable Mr. Nicolas Sigalas, Consul General of Greece in Montreal. More than 750 people attended the event, supporting with their presence and donations this worthwhile effort.

Mission has gifted more than $731,852 in foods and goods to forty five (45) different children’s organisations and charities in Greece to date. The list grows steadily as we receive funds and requests for help.
Also present at the event was Father Panagiotis Salatellis, Reverent of Saint-George Cathedral, Gerry Sklavounos, MNA of Quebec for Laurier-Dorion, Mary Deros, Deputy Mayor of Montreal and City Councillor for Parc-Extension, Aglaia Revelakis, Laval City Councillor for Chomedey, Vasilios Karidogiannis, Laval City Councillor for L’Abord-à-Plouffe, Nicholas T.
