The Hellenic Museum and Cultural Center is pleased to welcome Alex Spanos, owner of the San Diego Chargers, entrepreneur and author of Sharing the Wealth: My Story on Tuesday, April 1, 2003. Visitors will have a chance to meet Mr. Spanos at a reception beginning at 6:30 p.m. prior to his presentation and book signing at 7:00 p.m. The event will be held in the former National Bank of Greece lobby, located on the first floor of 168 North Michigan Avenue. Immediately following the presentation guests are invited to the Hellenic Museum Gallery, located on the 4th floor of the building, to view the current exhibition entitled Remembering Generations: The Greek Immigrant’s Journey.

Alex Spanos is a cyclonic force of energy, passion, commitment and determination. He is a business giant in the real estate and construction industry in addition to owning the San Diego Chargers football team. An unabashed patriot, Mr. Spanos embodies the American dream with his unique vision, instinct and unwavering belief in himself and American ideals. Born of Greek immigrants, he took an $800 loan and went from baking 300 dozen donuts a day to creating a “Fortune 400” company in real estate and construction, building over 80,000 apartment units.

Sharing the Wealth: My Story is a book that shares the knowledge and tactics of Alex Spanos’ success with insightful, behind-the-scenes stories of how it all happened. It is refreshingly honest, helpful and clear in its mission to help others reach their potential.
