Cocktails & Hors D’oeuvres
The “We Are Gyumri” campaign, will kick off their first event on Saturday, August 9th, at Noor Restaurant in the Sofia Foyer Hall (260 East Colorado Boulevard, Pasadena,CA 91101) with a Cocktail and Hors D’oeuvres Event hosted by the AYF Orange County “Ashod Yergat” Chapter from 8pm to 12am.
“We Are Gyumri” is a campaign focused on raising funds to help unite and strengthen our youth organization in Gyumri, Armenia. The initial step is to upgrade and renovate the youth offices and facilities located at their Armenian Community Center. Currently, the building needs to be completely rebuilt, as it is unsafe and is not in condition to serve as a proper location for communal meetings. The establishment of a community center will create a common ground for the youth to meet, learn, interact, and collaborate. As this is only the first project of an entire campaign, our ultimate goal is to create a lasting positive impact on the youth of the region that is still struggling after the devastation of the 1988 earthquake.
