On Saturday, October 16, 2010, The Harbor Island Grand Foyer of the Sheraton San Diego Hotel & Marina will be transformed into a bazaar of hand-made, mouth-watering Greek sweets, one-of-a-kind finds, and cheerful entertainment. As guests are warmly welcomed to the reception at 11 a.m., the annual patron favorite, “Shopping by Chance”, will afford an opportunity for everyone to purchase chances on an arra

Afterwards, Chef Steve Black will create a delicious EnVogue dining experience featuring a thoughtful green banquet menu, topped off with fair trade and shade grown coffee and imaginative desserts.

A surprise local celebrity will preside over the inspiring ceremonies culminating in honoring the philanthropic contributions of four outstanding San Diegans chosen to receive the 2010 Anthousa Award, the chapter’s highest honor.
Proceeds will benefit:
Enhancing the lives of military personnel and their families in spirit, mind, and body.
Providing foster care for severely abused, neglected, and abandoned children.
Promoting charity, benevolence, and philanthropy in San Diego since 1938.
EnVogue is presented annually by the Ladies Philoptochos Society, Anthousa Chapter. The first Philoptochos (“fi-lop-to-hos”; friend of those in need) was organized in New York City in 1902. Today’s Philoptochos is a national non-profit organization officially chartered in 1931, comprised of approximately 480 chapters and 28,000 members. It is the largest Christian women’s charitable organization in the western hemisphere!
The Ladies Philoptochos Society, along with general chair Alexandra Mouzas, heartily invite you to join in the celebration on Saturday, October 16, 2010.
