Preservation of American Hellenic History

The Olympic Legacy
San Jose, California

Description / Invitation

2004 is an Olympic year! The Olympic Games, which started in Greece, are returning to their HOME? Athens 2004 is an extremely important event for all the Greeks of the mainland as well as those of diaspora.

The Hellenic Heritage Institute is comprised of Greeks of the diaspora who chose America to live, work and prosper, but kept deep in their hearts the love and pride of their precious heritage.

The 2004 Olympic Games is the perfect opportunity for the members of the Hellenic Heritage Institute to share with the rest of their fellow Americans the pride and history of the Olympic Games, which is part of their heritage and the history of humanity.

The Olympic Legacy is a week long happening, which will include cultural and athletic events in tribute of the Olympic Games 2004. Some of these events will be held at the History Park, the location of the Hellenic Museum in San Jose. Other venues proposed for The Olympic Legacy will be stadiums, athletic fields, and small theaters and concert halls.

It is the intention of the Hellenic Heritage Institute to include Greek-American organizations, educational Institutions of various levels, and athletic clubs of the San Francisco Bay Area as collaborators, sponsors and participants. These include:

The Consulate of Greece in San Francisco, the Consulate of Cyprus, the Greek Orthodox Diocese of San Francisco, Greek Orthodox churches and choirs of the Bay Area, the United Hellenic American Societies (comprised of 36 regional Greek American organizations), the Human Performance Department of San Jose State University, the Music Department of San Jose State University, and many more.

We sincerely hope that YOU, as an individual or organization, will also become one of our supporters and will contribute your talent, time and much needed monetary contribution.

Please send by e-mail to, or communicate by telephone with, the contact persons.
