Winter Holidays Virtual Reception and 2020 Dee Sarelas Service Award Ceremony. RSVP now!

This holiday event is sponsored by Chicago a Cappella, and Cupitol Coffee.

THE CHICAGO CHAPTER of the Fulbright Association invites you, your family, colleagues and friends to attend our Virtual Winter Reception and the 2020 Dee Sarelas Fulbright Service Award Ceremony.

The Dee Sarelas Service Award was established in 2009 to honor the memory of Aphrodite “Dee” Floros Sarelas*, a Fulbrighter who established the foundations of the Chicago Chapter of the Fulbright Association and dedicated her time to promote internationalism. This award recognizes the efforts of a local person and organization that follow Dee’s example for service.

This event will present a wonderful opportunity to virtually mingle with fellow Fulbrighters and make new connections, while enjoying a night of entertainment with a Chicago a Cappella virtual concert and a raffle filled with great prizes! We look forward to seeing you there!

*Aphrodite Floros Sarelas, an early Fulbrighter to Greece. A Chicagoan dedicated to interacting with and nurturing Fulbrighters in the Chicagoland community, Dee was a person remembered for her wit, empathy, and vivacity in bringing people across cultures together. Her educational background and professional experiences in the field of Social Work prepared her well for contributions to our chapter and beyond—as an administrator for the American Red Cross and the Salvation Army Training College, as a liaison at White House conferences, as a special consultant to Voice of America, and as editor of Social Welfare in Underdeveloped Countries (United Nations publication). For the foregoing reasons, the Dee Sarelas Fulbright Service Award has been established in her memory.
