International Orthodox Christian Charities (IOCC) Annual Fall Fundraiser -  Food & Wine Tour. Hosted by the IOCC Metropolitan Committee of Northern California and our Greek Orthodox Church of the Holy Cross. IOCC is the official humanitarian relief and development agency of the Assembly of Canonical Orthodox Bishops of the United States of America. It represents the American Orthodox Church’s humanitarian “first responders” when an emergency happens anywhere in the world, including here in the United States. Its mission is to provide “emergency relief and development programs to those in need worldwide, without discrimination, and strengthen the capacity of the Orthodox Church to respond” to emergencies. Ninety two percent of donations goes directly to program services. IOCC is able to achieve this efficiency by partnering with local Orthodox parishes on the ground in the countries they work in. IOCC then provides the operational expertise and support to help these parishes direct resources where they can be most effective. / We need your help to ensure that IOCC can continue to help those in need!! / Please support IOCC by attending our annual fall fundraiser! This annual fundraiser is among the top 5 in the country each and IOCC relies on the support of the SF Bay Area community to be able to fulfill its mission. This year it will be graciously hosted by the Holy Cross on Sunday, November 5, 4 to 7 PM. The event will feature live entertainment from Eikona ( )  / Matthew 25:35, 36, and 40 say: “For I was hungry and you gave me food; I was thirsty and you gave me drink; I was a stranger and you welcomed me; I was naked and you clothed me; I was sick and you visited me; I was in prison and you came to me… as you did it to one of the least of these my brethren, you did it to me.” Please click here for the event bannerFor more information please visit: International Orthodox Christian Charities ( or email Kristen Azar at
