The Emmanuel “Manny” Dimitriou Memorial Fund (Berks County Angel Fund)

Emmanuel “Manny” Dimitriou was born in Greece in 1933, but grew up on Pearl Street in Reading, PA. Always a motivated student, he graduated from Franklin and Marshall and Dickinson School of Law. From there, he went on to open his own criminal defense law practice in Reading. A father of seven children, he wanted to ensure that children could always live up to their full potential. This field of interest fund is for children under 18 in Berks County with a critical medical, social, or educational need. His daughter Eleni, who is also attorney, said that her father “had an energy about him. There was lightness to his spirit. He never said no. He loved life. He liked to drink, dance, and never said bad words… He was like a brand. Like Coca Cola. People across the board have said that.”
