The Yiannis Ploutarhos concert on Saturday night was one of the highlights of the Greek entertainment calendar in 2009.

More than 7 000 people packed out Rod Laver Arena and enjoyed a night of high quality Greek music.

The concert raised funds for Agapi Care to purchase to purchase or build a large home to house kids with special needs.

$151 800  was donated to Agapi on the night.

Spotted amongst the crowd were fashion designer Christopher Chronis and Network Ten news reader Helen Kapalos.

People were dancing in the aisles and the stage was strewn with carnations. All in all, a wonderful time was had by all. Photos: Peter Kakalias
