LOS ANGELES—Armenia Tree Project’s 20th anniversary committee has been hard at work organizing an unforgettable event to be held at the Huntington Library, Art Collection, and Botanical Gardens in San Marino, California, on May 4.
The beautiful venue was founded in 1919 by Henry E. Huntington, an exceptional businessman and a man of vision—with a special interest in books, art, and gardens. During his lifetime, Huntington amassed one of the finest research libraries in the world, established a splendid art collection, and created an array of botanical gardens with plants from a geographic range that spans the globe.
Originally the Huntington family residence, the Huntington Art Gallery contains one of the most comprehensive collections in this country of 18th and 19th century British and French art and is home to Gainsborough’s Blue Boy and Lawrence’s Pinkie.
During cocktail hour on the Gallery Loggia, gala guests will have the opportunity to walk through the gallery and enjoy cocktails and appetizers, followed by a sit down dinner on the South Terrace of the magnificent residence to celebrate ATP’s 20 years of greening Armenia.
ATP has planted more than 4.4 million trees during 40 seasons of planting, established three nurseries and two environmental education centers, and has greened villages, churches, parks, and open spaces throughout Armenia. In the process, the organization has provided employment for hundreds of people and provided vital resources to thousands of villagers throughout the country.
The 20th anniversary committee in Los Angeles consists of Elizabeth and Mihran Agbabian, Flora and George Dunaians, Sabine and Al Eiasian, Arax Mansourian and Shahen Hairapetian, Zarmig and Garo Kazarian, Ani and Shant Kenderian, Hilda and Haig Manjikian, Salpi and Viken Mankerian, Margaret and David Mgrublian, Aleen and Mardik Oruncakciel, and Savey and Ralph Tufenkian.
