Providence community unites for “Together for Artsakh” fundraiser

PROVIDENCE, R.I.—The Armenian community of Rhode Island is coming together on Saturday, November 18 at the Egavian Hall (70 Jefferson Street, Providence, RI 02908) for a special event to support our most important cause. The Together for Artsakh fundraiser is set to be a memorable evening as we come together to raise funds for the displaced families of Artsakh. 

The event is being hosted jointly by our community organizations: the Armenian Revolutionary Federation (ARF), Armenian Youth Federation (AYF), Armenian Relief Society (ARS), Homenetmen and Hamazkayin. 

A buffet dinner catered by Sonia’s Near East Market & Deli will be served at 6:30 p.m., with a program to follow.

ARS representative Taline Mkrtschjan will provide an update from the work being done on the ground in our homeland. Having recently returned from Armenia, she will provide crucial insights into the current relief efforts in progress.

Attendees will also receive a visionary outlook by ARF Bureau member Khajag Megerdichian, who will share his thoughts and perspective on the future role our diasporan Armenian communities will play in supporting the homeland.

The highlight of the evening will be a captivating performance of Armenian folk, patriotic and revolutionary songs by Tro Krikorian and Ara Dabandjian. Their acoustic renditions will strike a deep chord of Armenian patriotism, creating an unforgettable atmosphere of unity and solidarity.

We encourage all members of our community and beyond to come together and make this event a resounding success. Let us unite as a community and stand—together for Artsakh. Your presence and support are invaluable as we come together to make a positive impact on the lives of those in need. 

All proceeds from the fundraiser will be directed towards supporting the ARS relief efforts for displaced Artsakh families, making a tangible difference in the lives of those affected by the ongoing challenges in the region.

Tickets are available for purchase for $60 online. For cash/check payments and table reservation requests, please contact Nareg Mkrtschjan through email at or by phone at 401-358-2155.
