On May 13, 2011, AGBU’s Young Professionals (YP) of Toronto hosted a gathering at Toronto’s newest champagne bar and lounge, FOMO. Over 90 YPs attended the fundraiser in support of the AGBU Zaroukian School, and the event raised hundred of dollars for the school’s science program.
“We are extremely appreciative of the support we have received from YP Toronto,” said Lena Sarkissian of the Zaroukian School Board. “Recognizing the importance that the AGBU Zaroukian School has placed on sciences and that half the tuition of each student is subsidized by AGBU, YP Toronto took the initiative to raise funds to support this new undertaking.”
A special thanks is extended to everyone who helped make the event a success and who supports YP Toronto’s commitment to fundraising projects in Armenia and within Toronto’s Armenian community.
In 2011 so far, YP Toronto has actively fundraised for several projects in Armenia, including the AGBU Children’s Centers and the pan-YP environmental project which built a park in Khachik.
