Several friends of the Armenia Tree Project put together a New York City cocktail reception and silent auction for the organization at Studio 580 on Oct. 21. The program was led by Forbes columnist Vahan Janjigian and included remarks by ATP executive committee member Nancy Kricorian. The reception was co-hosted by Margarita Melikjanian, James Norian, and Lisa Vahradian.
A crowd of more than 100 friends turned out for the event, including musicians, painters, filmmakers, legal advocates, and leaders from the non-profit and business community. As with most ATP events, the evening was full of energy as young and older supporters mingled and bid on auction items. ATP is currently raising funds to meet the Global ReLeaf Challenge as part of its partnership with American Forests.
