Mindy Scordilis  HONOLULU, HI
Sharon Higashi & Angeliki Scordilis, are high school seniors and active members of our church, Ss. Constantine & Helen Greek Orthdodox Cathedral of the Pacific.  

They grew up together as best friends and were very excited last month, when they received the wonderful news that they were granted scholarships to attend Ionian Village, a 20-day spiritual and cultural based summer camp in Greece.  They will join 200 youth from all around the country and be fully immersed in their culture and faith.  Visiting archeological sites, learning the Greek language, and especially the opportunity to visit monasteries and venerate the saints in person are some incredible things they look forward to experiencing.

Though they are blessed beyond measure to have this incredible opportunity, there are numerous expenses that the scholarships do not fully cover.  We still need to raise funds for their round-trip airfare from Honolulu to JFK, onto  Athens, Greece, as well as I.V. camp fees.  Hopefully, any extra funds could be used as spending money on the trip and donations to the different monasteries they visit.

These young women are fundraising personally and selling cookies, pretzel sticks, and marshmallow cereal bars (along with anything else they can think of), to make this once-in-a-lifetime trip happen.  

As their moms, Anita and I are also trying to help them achieve their goals.  We're creating this page to crowd-source and reach out to our family, friends, and anyone else able to donate to these amazing young women.  We are grateful for the largest to the smallest donations and believe no donation is too small.  Even $1 is greatly appreciated!

Much mahalo, Efharisto, and God Bless.
