Armenia Fund USA announces its Tribute Gala planned for October 24, 2003, at the St. Regis Hotel in New York City. The evening is dedicated to honoring Armenia Fund USA’s Major Donors, who have been supporting social and functional infrastructure in Karabagh and Armenia during the last decade.

The evening’s proceeds will benefit the building of Stepanakert’s Diagnostic Center, an integral component of Karabagh’s first comprehensive modern healthcare center. This special evening will be attended by several esteemed guests, including Arkady Ghoukasian, the President of Nagorno-Karabagh, and Baroness Caroline Cox, an international human rights activist long dedicated to Armenian causes. Mark Momjian, a preeminent lawyer and Armenian culturist, will be hosting the Gala as Master of Ceremonies.

Armenia Fund USA has contributed to Himnadram’s programs, building over 1,380 miles of roads, 81 miles of waterways, 36 schools, 3 electric transmission networks, 210 residential buildings, and 14 healthcare institutions.
