In May of 2013, ASF held a very successful Salsa Night event attended by 250 guests. Proceeds from this event, our annual raffle sales, combined with a number of generous “In lieu of”, “In memory of“ and other donations enabled ASF to raise the funds needed to furnish these eight schools.
“We would like to express our gratitude to our supporters and donors for their continued support, encouragement, and their belief in improving the educational environment of our future generations. We are planning to expand our services and offerings. This year, we will celebrate our 10th anniversary. Proceeds from the anniversary and other fundraiser activities will provide us opportunities to offer future expanded services” stated Moneh Der Gregorian, Chairman of the ASF Board.
