The National Hellenic Society and the National Hellenic Museum are organizing Heritage Weekend, where Emmy & Golden Globe Winning Best Actor Michael Chiklis will be honored, from October 6, 2022 to October 9, 2022.
Heritage Weekend will take place at the luxurious, beachside Waldorf Astoria Monarch Beach Resort, and the organizers promise something for everyone to enjoy, “especially the outstanding parea.”
In an announcement, the organizers say they will honor one of Hollywood’s most accomplished actors and celebrities with lead roles in feature films and several long-running television series including The Commish, The Shield, and Gotham among others.

The NHS reached a milestone this year with the addition of the American College of Thessaloniki and the American College of Greece as host schools for over one hundred Heritage Greece students, including nine Greek-Canadian students, thanks to our partners at the Hellenic Heritage Foundation of Toronto.
NHS has sponsored over six hundred students on this life-changing journey of self-discovery and connections to heritage, culture, and roots. The students make life-long friends, and we look forward to welcoming Heritage Greece Alumni for a reunion in tandem with Heritage Weekend.
Heritage Weekend also offers several activities, such as beach volleyball and tennis tournaments, biking, hiking, spa and wellness facilities, watersports, reserved poolside and beach cabanas, and a world-class onsite golf course featuring the George Korkos & Telly Savalas Classic Tournament.
