This Christmas is like no other Christmas at Ronald McDonald House® New York with the absence of Niki Sideris, who passed away in October.
Niki Sideris created the Greek Division at the House in 1979 to support children and families suffering through the trials of pediatric cancer treatment. Since then, over 10,000 Greek families have found shelter at their home-away-from-home.
This year’s event, taking place on Monday, December 12, will honor Greek community leader, Archbishop Demetrios, primate of the Greek Orthodox Church in America. The event will also include a special tribute in Mrs. Sideris’ remembrance.
Ronald McDonald House® New York is a “home away from home” that offers children with cancer and their families shelter and support while they undergo active treatment. Since its founding, more than 25,000 children have stayed at Ronald McDonald House® New York.
Please contact Nicole Pickens if you are interested in additional information or covering the event.
