YP Greater New York Raises $21,000 for AGBU Humanitarian Emergency Relief Fund
Silent auction held in support of Syrian and Iraqi Armenian communities
The AGBU Young Professionals of Greater New York (YPGNY) kicked off 2015 with its 14th annual Silent Auction & Cocktail Party at 121 Fulton Street in New York. The event raised $21,000 for AGBU’s Humanitarian Emergency Relief Fund in support of the Syrian and Iraqi Armenian communities and drew 225 young professionals from throughout the tri-state area.
2015 was the second year the YPGNY committee chose to hold the annual Silent Auction & Cocktail Party in support of the AGBU Humanitarian Emergency Relief Fund. Together with YPGNY’s 2014 proceeds, YPGNY has raised $41,000 for Syrian and Iraqi Armenian communities in need. In past years, the event has raised money for the AGBU Children’s Centers in Armenia.
