Event Held by SNF Grantee, Greek Frogmen Association
14 January 2019

On Sunday, January 13th, 2019, a New Year’s cake-cutting event was held by the Greek Frogmen Association at the Yacht Club of Greece. Stavros Niarchos Foundation (SNF) representatives participated in the event and were presented with a plaque recognizing SNF's positive contribution to Greek society.

Vasilopita, the traditional New Year’s cake of Greece, is baked with a coin in the batter that brings good luck to the person who finds it in their piece.

As part of its grant making activities, the SNF has supported the Greek Frogmen Association in the purchase of diving equipment for the Association’s branches in Athens, Thessaloniki, and Chania. The aim of this grant was to enhance the important work of the Association, which focuses on the conservation of clean waters through the removal of debris, litter, and other harmful material from beaches and waterways, as well as on emergency aid during crises
