Posted on April 21, 2010
On April 11, 2010, The Youth Division of Hayastan All Armenian Fund Canada raised $2,500 to be placed towards their $25,000 goal. Their event called Cheese ‘n Tease, was a unique idea that blended speed dating for singles with a wine and cheese cocktail party for committed spectators, it was held at Montreal’s Tekeyan Cultural Association center and resulted in a great success.
The event was hosted by popular dating-expert Bedros Akkelian (Spidey) of Art of Attraction fame who gained much appraisal from the attendees, many of which were happy to see Montreal’s Armenian youth get involved in their community.
Overall the Youth Division was happy with the results of their first of many fundraisers to come. The team of young Armenians hopes to raise enough funds to renovate the community center of the village Artsni, located on the Northern periphery of the marz of Lori. The center was built in the 60’s and has had no renovations since. It is in dire need of new windows, flooring, ceilings and much more. The Youth Division of Hayastan All Armenian Fund intends to supply the community center with a modern computer room.
