The Greek Parade has been a tradition in New York since the early 1930's. John Catsimatidis is a proud son of the Greek American Community in New York City. A leader in the Greek Orthodox Church of America, John Catsimatidis is currently the Protector of Religious Freedom for Greek Orthodoxy worldwide. Heritage and devotion to family are themes of the Greek Parade, two things John Catsimatidis holds close to his heart.
