Rafi and Joanne Manoukian Donate $100 000 to Horizon Television

GLENDALE–Mr. and Mrs. Rafi and Joanne Manoukian recently made a generous donation of $100,000 to Horizon Television on the occasion of that program’s 10th anniversary. The sum will be used to improve Horizon Television’s equipment and facilities.

The Manoukian family has been an ardent supporter of Horizon Television since its first broadcast in 1989.

At that time–Vatche Manoukian’s $100,000 donation made it possible to purchase the original Horizon TV equipment and launch Horizon’s weekly one-hour program. Rafi and Joanne Manoukian continue the family tradition of enhancing the Armenian media 10 years later with their own contribution to upgrade the original equipment. The upgrade will help improve the current Horizon facilities to make it possible to deliver the Armenian public quality TV transmission.

In its second stage of growth–from a 90 minute program to a 24-hour station–the Manoukian’s much needed support is appreciated.

"The Manoukians’ generous contribution will go a long way in ensuring continued quality TV to our Armenian Public," said Executive Producer and Editor of Horizon TV John Kossakian.
