YP Greater New York Fundraise Record $20,000 for AGBU’s Syria Relief Efforts
The AGBU Young Professionals of Greater New York (YPGNY) raised a record $20,000 during their 13th Annual Silent Auction and Cocktail Party, funds that are making a critical difference in the lives of thousands of Syrian-Armenian families as the war there continues to escalate.
The group’s signature event brought over 200 guests to Parlor, a lounge in downtown Manhattan that the YPGNY Committee filled with high-end auction items donated by generous individuals and companies. Each and every gift was claimed as the bids climbed, amounting to one of the most successful fundraisers in YP history.
This local New York event is having a dramatic impact on AGBU’s humanitarian efforts halfway around the world. On the ground in Aleppo, Damascus, Kamishli and, most recently, Kessab, as well as in Lebanon and Armenia, where countless families have found refuge, AGBU is providing food, water, medical supplies, educational scholarships and relocation support to those in need.
