LOS ANGELES — While celebrating 100 years of faith, love, and service, the Armenian Missionary Association of America (AMAA) will pay tribute to three long-time West Coast supporters who will be honored on Saturday, October 20, 2018. The Stephen Philibosian and the Conte Foundation, the Sheen Family Trust, and the Gerald and Patricia Turpanjian, TF Educational Foundation, will receive tributes at the event.

The AMAA has set a goal of $20 million toward its 2018 Centennial Campaign in support of churches, schools and camps in Armenia, the Middle East and worldwide, while still maintaining its Endowment Fund designed to help those in need.

Proceeds from the fund raisers are being used for the Annual Operating Fund, Capital Projects, and Endowment Funds.
