The $100,000 donation made by Sarkis Boghosian to the ARS Central Executive–at the July 12 dinner-dance held in Las Vegas in celebration of the 77th Regional Convention of the Armenian Relief Society of the Western US–will be utilized for the ARS Summer Camp in Armenia Fund–reported the ARS Central Executive. The camp will bear the benefactor’s name.
"We are sure that this camp founded on Armenian soil–will benefit greatly the physical and spiritual cultivation of Diasporan and native Armenian youth," the Central Executive said.
At the dinner-dance–ARS members presented the benefactor with a golden ARS insignia.
An additional $100,000 donation made to the Western Regional Executive will be used toward the construction of the region’s new headquarters.
