Stephanie Patsalis: Author, Speaker & Greek Cuisine Entrepreneur

I want to bring the Mediterranean food brands and culture together in a way that highlights the best in Greek culture. I feel like sponsors can really capitalize on knowing that their products are well represented.

The Hellenic American Family Foundation, today announced it is accepting tiered sponsorships to provide funding for a unique non-profit educational video series on Mediterranean cuisine with host and spokesperson Stephanie Patsalis. Patsalis is leading a nationwide movement to bring Mediterranean cuisine into mainstream American culture. Patsalis is a national cookbook author, Mediterranean cuisine instructor, host and producer of Simply Greek, an educational video series dedicated to spreading health and wellness through the use of traditional ingredients found in a Mediterranean diet. Previous cooking instructional videos include preparation of dishes like Greek Spanakopita, Kalamata Bruschetta, and Walnut Baklava Salmon.

"Most people aren't cooking Greek tonight, they think Italian or Mexican, but they know their favorite Greek restaurant -- and yet the Mediterranean diet is the healthiest and freshest in the world," says Patsalis. "I want to bring the Mediterranean food brands and culture together in a way that highlights the best in Greek culture. I feel like sponsors can really capitalize on knowing that their products are well represented by someone who believes in the Mediterranean diet and has an equal passion for Greek American culture -- that's why Simply Greek is so near and dear to me, and why I want to bring it to the masses."

This is the first nationwide sponsorship campaign from the Hellenic American Family Foundation, an organization dedicated to promoting Greek American heritage, cultural awareness, and helping provide food for families in need. HAFF seeks sponsorship at three levels: Title, Presenting, and Supporting. Title Sponsors contribute to the film project with a $100,000 donation. A maximum of five Presenting Sponsors may contribute at the $50,000 level, and a limited number of Supporting Sponsors may contribute at the $25,000 level. The sponsored video footage will feature Title Sponsors along with logo placement, a sponsor mention, and potential product placement within the educational video. The Simply Greek series will be distributed through social media channels such as YouTube, Facebook, Twitter, and LinkedIn, along with mentions from the campaign's spokesperson Stephanie Patsalis. Title and Presenting Sponsors may be mentioned by Patsalis on television appearances, during radio interviews and print magazines. Presenting Sponsors receive sponsor mention, logo placement on the HAFF website and multi-channel media distribution through social media groups: YouTube, Facebook, Twitter, and LinkedIn. All sponsors will be featured as benefactors in the video production, and listed in communications through social media to email subscribers, social media channels, and at speaking events featuring Patsalis.
