105th Anniversary Armenian Genocide Commemoration Cancelled due to Coronavirus, AGC Donates to Armenia

BOCA RATON, FL – The South Florida Armenian Genocide Commemoration, Inc. (AGC) has canceled this year’s annual April 24th Armenian Genocide commemorative program, AGC announced in an email.

“This year, in lieu of having a commemorative event, we have decided to assist Armenia in their fight against COVID-19,” AGC Chair Arsine Kaloustian said via email. “We will send a donation on behalf of AGC to the Armenia Fund. What better way to help Armenia but when she is in dire need,” she said.

AGC will donate $1,000 to Armenia Fund’s COVID-19 relief operations in Armenia, according to AGC. The coronavirus continues to spread in Armenia and Nagorno Karabakh. The Armenian government imposed a 30-day ‘State of Emergency’ on March 16, and announced a 10-day extension last week.
