St. Michael’s Home honored the Archbishop Iakovos Leadership 100 Endowment Fund with the 2015 Archangel Michael Award at its Annual Name Day Gala at the Metropolitan Club in New York City on November 8, 2015. 

The Award honors a distinguished member of the Greek Orthodox Community “who embodies and promotes the finer qualities and traditions” of the Hellenic heritage. In acknowledging Leadership 100, St. Michael’s noted the collective impact of its 976 distinguished members through its contributions to priority needs of the Greek Orthodox Archdiocese of America and its dedication in advancing the Orthodox Faith and Hellenic Heritage in America, to the Greek American Community, and to the nation and the world.

In accepting the Award, George S. Tsandikos, Leadership 100 Chairman, commended Archbishop Demetrios and Bishop Andonios for their commitment to the mission of St. Michael’s and noted the historic expansion of St. Michael’s Home into new facilities and said, “St. Michael’s Home will become even more of a beacon of hope for our aging society and for all of us who have come to recognize and accept the stages of life we all share in the loving community that is our Church.”

Paulette Poulos, Leadership 100 Executive Director, also addressed the gathering and thanked St. Michael’s Home for the Award. She also acknowledged the spiritual leadership of Archbishop Demetrios and her long-standing relationship with Bishop Andonios, whom she commended for his leadership of St. Michael’s. She said, “As you continue to grow with the expansion into your new and beautiful home, I know the great spiritual leaders of our Faith and Church will continue to be with you, and those of us who are privileged to witness firsthand your ministry and mission will continue to support you as you so marvelously support the elderly and provide for their care.”
