NAPLES, FL – The Armenian Church of Southwest Florida held its annual ‘Men’s Basterma Breakfast’ on February 15. Over 25 attendees were hosted by Nancy Kazarian and Dolly Matoian at the Kazarian home in Naples, FL.

This year’s gathering raised $2,400, with all proceeds going to support five soup kitchens in Armenia, sponsored by the Fund for Armenian Relief, that aid the elderly and disadvantaged.
