SOAR Hosting Third Annual Fundraising Event

A SOAR-funded computer lab in Armenia

GLENDALE—The Los Angeles Chapter of Society for Orphaned Armenian Relief (SOAR) is hosting its 3rd Annual Casino Royale Fundraising Event on November 10, 2012 in effort to help raise funds for the Computer Lab Project for orphanages in Armenia and for humanitarian relief for the orphanages of Artsakh, Javakhk and Lebanon.

SOAR hopes to raise additional funds for five computer labs for the children in the orphanages in Armenia and send humanitarian relief to the Armenian orphans in the Diaspora.

“We are also preparing a sea container to be shipped to Armenia by fall, 2012, thanks to generous and loyal donors,” said Kohar Mardirossian Pelter, the President of SOAR-LA. “Casino Royale evening promises to be a fun filled evening with a wide selection of fun play, exciting prizes, fantastic gifts and media coverage.”

Kardarshian’s presence in social media is just as prominent as the rest of his family and his willingness to bring attention to this event is remarkable.
