More Than $2.5 Million Raised at ANCA Telethon

GLENDALE, Calif.–At the conclusion of the six-hour ANCA Endowment Fund Telethon, $2,548,000 was raised from donations large and small from a wide cross-section of the community, demonstrating and bolstering the grassroots power and capability of Armenian Americans.

During the six-hour broadcast, the telethon aired segments documenting the activities of the ANCA Endowment Fund in working for genocide education and recognition, aid to Armenia and Nagorno-Karabakh, and encouraging participation by the Armenian American community.

Volunteers from all walks of life flooded the Horizon Armenian Television studios for the entire day to help ensure the success of the telethon, which was being planned for several months.

Asbarez will present highlights and entire coverage of the telethon in its upcoming editions.
