In May of 2014, ASF held a very successful Salsa Night event attended by 220 guests. Proceeds from this event, our annual raffle sales, combined with a number of generous “In lieu of”, “In memory of” and other donations enabled ASF USA to raise the funds needed to furnish these seven schools.
In October of 2014 ASF USA, Ararat 70th Celebrations Arts Committee and Melik Voskanian Foundation joined hands to organize an art and sculpture exhibit and book dedication event in recognition of architect, artist and sculptor Rostom Voskanian. Proceeds from the sale of this exhibit provided funds to furnish Karmirgyugh School #1 in entirety and set up a permanent exhibit hall of Rostom Voskanian’s lifelong heritage in Yerevan.
In January of 2015 ASF USA received a generous donation from Tamberchi Foundation. Through these funds ASF USA is in the process of completing several large projects during 2015.
