For Hometown News

St. Demetrios Greek Orthodox Church hosted a luncheon on Sunday, June 16, to highlight the important role of fathers in the community.

Part of the proceeds were donated to Food Brings Hope Inc., an organization dedicated to fighting hunger and homelessness among students in Volusia County Schools, and to St. Stephen's Summer Youth Camp in South Carolina.

The event recognized three "All American Super Dads," who, through their good works and actions, serve as role models in the community.

The honorees included former Daytona Mayor Lawrence J. "Larry" Kelly, and church members Dr. Dick Ajalat and Lambros Papalambros. They were each presented with a commemorative plaque and a Superman T-shirt, with Mr. Kelly receiving a Captain America shirt to acknowledge his outstanding commitment to public service.

Forough Hosseini, founder and chairwoman of Food Brings Hope, was among the speakers at the event.

"Food Brings Hope is dedicated to helping children to reach their highest potential and to motivating them to work toward their goals," said Mrs. Hosseini. "Parents play such an important role in this process. We thank Tasso (Kiriakes) and the community of St. Demetrios for recognizing these 'Super Dads' and for supporting our organization's efforts to provide additional guidance to children who need it."

More than 100 people attended the first ever celebration, which was organized by a church committee led by Mr. Kiriakes.
