Spread the Word – Fundraiser Concert for Owner of Greek Spot, Recovering from Surgery, Jan. 4th

“Dear PoPville,

Many people on PoPville have talked about their love of The Greek Spot, on 11th St. What many people probably don’t know is that the owner, Greg Kavadias, has been home recovering from major surgery to remove a very large brain tumor. Thankfully he is doing well, but the medical bills associated with the surgery are incredibly high and putting a huge burden on he, his wife, and their two young boys.

Greg is a great friend, and has been a huge part of the DC community for years. We are throwing an event in his honor, on Saturday January 4th, at U Street Music Hall. Tickets are only $10, and ALL of the door proceeds are being given to Greg and his family to help offset the medical debt they incurred. We would love to have the support of the DC folks who frequent The Greek Spot, whether they know Greg personally or not. This will be an amazing night of music and friendship and we really want to SPREAD THE WORD and have this event sell out!!”

You can purchase tickets here.

    Credit to U Street Music Hall for doing this, on a Saturday too.

    It looks like the event is already sold out.

    Is there any way we can contribute directly?

    Greg and everyone at Greek Spot are friends and fellow U street villagers.

    We need to help!

    I live at 11th and U and LOVE the Greek Spot. Greg and all who work there are very nice and hard working people. I would love to contribute, but like 11thandV said looks like the event is already sold out. Who can we contact to donate to? Thanks!

    looks like you are still able to get tickets.

  • I have eaten here about 2783723479 times.. this is my favorite neighborhood spot. Awesome vegetarian options. I had to move to Nashville but anytime I go back to visit, I make a stop here. Really appreciate everything they are to our community. I can’t be there but I will buy two tickets anyway in support. Wishing a speedy recovery both with health and finances. Much love

    Yes, I would love to see a direct donation link. I — and probably some other Greek Spot fans — won’t be going to U Hall on Saturday night at 10pm or later but would still like to help.

    Also, the ticketing page says “Free before 12am for 21+” — so they’ll only make money (for Greg) from 18-20 year olds until after midnight?

    Can anyone verify the validity of this donation link?

    It looks legit, but I want to make sure before giving….

    • Yes, the giveforward.com link is legit. I just called The Greek Spot to confirm.
