Model Gabriela Panduru at Constantin Brancoveanu Award Gala 

 One of the most glamorous charity galas of the year took place a few days ago, at the Public Library of New York in Manhattan. Greeks, Romanians and Syrians from the political, business, academic and artistic fields attended the ceremony for the awarding of the international Constantin Brancoveanu prizes awarded for the first time by the Alexandrion Foundation, the charity of Alexandrion Group Romania.
"Only in a city such as New York, could in one night gather three communities, Greek, Romanian and Syrian" said Greek American State Senator Michael Yiannaris who was present at the Gala and was among the important personalities which were awarded. Honorary distinctions were also given to the publisher of the National Herald, Antonis Dimataris, the internationally renowned artist Philip Tsiaras and the actor Maria Tzombanaki, who now lives permanently in New York.
The event was attended by the elite of Greek businessmen living or operating in America. Among others, ONEX group leader Panos Xenocostas, Altantic Bank President Nancy Papaioannou, Vice President of Protravel Peter Vilttas, Capital Link Deputy Olga Bornosi, New Greek TV president Yanna Darilis and her husband Giorgos Psipsikos, Eftychia Pylarinou and Evangelos Venizelos from the Katsimatidis Group and business consultant Yannis Chorozoglou. The hostess of the glamorous night was actress Anthoula Katsimatidis.
The Alexandrion Foundation has been active in the past 20 years and has as its mission the strengthening of cultural institutions and sports clubs, and through the Constantin Brâncoveanu international awards, rewards important personalities for their social contribution. The President of Alexandrion Group and Alexandrion Foundation, Syrian Naouaf Salamech claims to be an ardent philhellene and his three children live in Greece, while he has been visiting Greece for the last 30 years, since when he first came to recognize his doctor's degree by DIKATSA.

Nicu Rotaru multiplu campion si alpinist de top aduce steagul Romaniei pe cele mai inalte culmi

  .   GLW: CIne este sportivul Nicu Rotaru, as vrea sa te introduci in cateva cuvinte! NR :Ma numesc Nicu Rotaru,am 46 de ani si vreau "sa ma prezint" Am practicat rugby 5 ani dar in urma unor multiple fracturi a trebuit sa renunt la acest minunat sport si sa continui pentru ca simteam ca pot mai mult. De notat ca in anul 1991 am iesit vice campion national cu echipa Asadar,sala de forta a devenit a doua casa a mea,si incepand din anul 1992 nu mai intrerupt antrenamentele.... Curand au aparut si rezultatele fiind multiplu medaliat la campionatele nationale,iar in anul 2007 succesul s-a conturat in titlul de campion balcanic la categoria +100 kg culturism. In urmatorul an am vrut o schimbare si am schimbat strategia de antrenament,respectiv in 2008 am castigat titlul de cel mai puternic om din Romania GLW: De unde vine  pasiunea si inspiratia pentru alpinism?    NR:  Am descoperit alpinismul si dragostea de munte..... Era o pasiune mai veche care am reusit sa o pun in practica
