Armenian Church of Orlando to Host Tea Party Fundraiser


Florida Armenians Fundraiser to Benefit the One Fund Boston


Florida Armenians would like to encourage you to attend a very special fundraiser to benefit the One Fund Boston to assist the victims of the Boston Marathon bombing. Hosted by Miami’s own Nectar Gebeshian, originally from Newton, Massachusetts, and The News Lounge in Miami, the evening will feature  a DJ, raffle, silent auction, giveaways, drink and tapas specials in addition to a dessert and candy bar.  The requested donation is $20 and includes one drink, one raffle ticket, and the dessert bar.

“I wanted to do something down here to benefit the victims because this really hit close to home.  It could have been me or any of my friends,” stated Nectar Gebeshian. ” The last thing the victims need to deal with is the mounting medical bills that they will continue to accumulate for the coming years, they need to focus on recovering and returning to some sense of normalcy. It’s not much but I believe every little bit counts,” Gebeshian said.

The goal is to raise $2,000 to benefit One Fund Boston which goes directly to the victims.
