LOS ANGELES–The Board of Directors of Cultural Impact Foundation, Inc. has announced its Inaugural Gala at the Taglyan Cultural Complex in Hollywood, California on September 7. CIF is a non-profit foundation established in 2017 which commissions and supports unique cultural projects that improve the understanding of historical events, and reveal acts of human kindness and heroism in the face of adversity.

The organization’s first two projects are “Titanic Love” and “Bloodless.” “Titanic Love” is a documentary film that tells the powerful story of Armenian passengers who set sail for the US aboard the RMS Titanic to escape the massacres in their homeland.

“Bloodless” tells the story of the successful and peaceful revolution that took place in Armenia in the summer of 2018 that was organized and led by Armenia’s youth. In so doing, they have provided the world with a blueprint of how to create sociopolitical change without bloodshed. This was true democracy in action.

CIF has commissioned the production of both projects to four-time Emmy Award-winning filmmaker, Bared Maronian.

“This exclusive gala is being meticulously planned and executed by a team of community leaders and proponents of Armenian causes” said the Chairwoman of the Gala, Kohar Mardirossian Pelter. The team members include Dr. Anait Alabyan, Nayiri Attarian, Liza Bagamian, Lena Basmajian, Hasmig Demirdjian, Anoush Sarkisyan, and CIF executive board members, Dr. Hrair Koutnouyan and Kohar Mardirossian Pelter.

Cocktails begin at 6:30 p.m. and includes a musical performance by flute and harp duo, Salpy and Sossy Kerkonian, and a surprise appearance by an international celebrity. A dinner reception will follow with a presentation by Bared Maronian on his two upcoming film projects. This will be followed with live entertainment by Allen G. and dancing. Throughout the evening, you will get the chance to bid on extraordinary and rare LIVE auction items.

Sponsorship packages and individual donation opportunities are available. Exclusive recognition opportunity is available in the program book as well as pre- and post-event coverage. Customized packages expand to “day-of event signage”, as well as national exposure on the CIF website. All proceeds from the event will benefit the production of the documentaries, Bloodless and Titanic Love.

    If the Cultural Impact Foundation wants to really have a cultural impact it should better spend their funds tackling the most obvious and pressing problem facing the Armenian community – the widespread illiteracy. That way the representatives of the community will have a chance to get into the social circles where they can legitimately and credibly represent Armenian culture. While we have some members of the community who already do that, they represent probably under 20% of the community, while the remaining 80% project very unappealing image and lead to others to construe the Armenian culture as one dominated by thuggery. Whether we like it or not, that’s actually true, sadly. So, I would call on all organizations to to interpret their mandates more broadly and address that most pressing issue head on, instead of sponsoring elusive projects with questionable objectives.
