Anastasios Hadjipateras has been an integral member of the Midas team since its founding. He is in charge of all of Midas’s day-to-day operations including online and festival sales, website maintenance, marketing, and organizing donations to the charities. He is currently a Junior at Garden City High School. He was born in Greece and moved to the US when he was eight years old. He maintains very close ties to Greece and sees Midas as a way to share his culture. He also started an educational campaign called “Faces of Our World,” which strives to educate children around the world about the refugee crisis (facesofourworld.org).
Christina Papachristos has also been involved with Midas since its first Greek Festival in 2018. Currently a sophomore at Garden City High, she assists in all areas of the business. Christina was born in Garden City but her Greek heritage has always been very important to her. She is an active member of St. Paul’s GOYA and is involved with many cultural and philanthropic activities.
