Sponsorship form

The Orpheus Hellenic Folklore Society (OHFS) is proudly celebrating its 30th year anniversary with a unique event that will take place on Saturday, November 23, 2019 at Arlington Park, 22W, Euclid Ave in Arlington Heights.

The program for the 30th year event will include dance and music performances, one-of-a-kind live Greek traditional music. Also included are full dinner buffet and amazing visuals for all to enjoy.

Tickets are $75 for adult and $45 for children 12 years and under.

This event will serve not only as a memorable celebration of the accomplishments and contribution of Orpheus to the Greek-American community, but will also be a major fundraising effort to keep the dance, singing, and music programs sustained for many years to come.
During the 30th Anniversary event, a significant portion of the proceeds will result from sponsorships from organizations, businesses and individual donors.
We would like to request your participation in this endeavor by completing the sponsorship form with the amount that you would like to offer.  All donations are tax deductible.

The OHFS has kept its promise and commitment 30 years ago by establishing a cultural program that is known for its quality and professionalism. Our programs include:

• The Orpheus Dance Troupe strives to provide its 60 adult members, 40 Nea Genia members and 100 youth members with opportunities to broaden their Greek folk experience through dance instruction, performances, workshops and conferences.

• Apprentice Instructor Program. A program designed to train dance instructors to meet the needs of our expanding youth membership. There are currently 12 instructors that support the youth and adult programs. All instructors attend workshops in the US, Canada and Greece and guest instructors from these regions have been featured at the groups’ practices.

• The Orpheus Music Ensemble is a group of musicians that features folk and popular musical instruments. The music ensemble accompanies the Orpheus dance troupe at performances.

• Costume Collection. As the youth and adult groups grow, the need for purchasing additional costumes as well as maintaining and storing them is essential.
