Last Two Events Sold Out with New Activities in Progress

New York – The AGBU New York Special Events Committee (NYSEC) recently
joined together with the Kips Bay Boys and Girls Club of America,
where more than 75 supporters gathered for the annual Kips Bay
Decorator Show House in Manhattan. This important fundraising event
brought together area residents, Armenian and non-Armenian alike, in a
show of support for the Boys and Girls Club of America. The sold out
afternoon continued for NYSEC participants at the trendy restaurants
JoJo and Barbaluc on the Upper East Side of New York City.

In addition to the Kips Bay event, the recently initiated committee
also hosted several other programs. During its inaugural event last
fall, NYSEC gathered a sizeable number of guests for an afternoon tour
and high tea at Caramoor in Katonah, New York. Winter outings for the
group have included a day trip to Madame Tussaud’s Wax Museum and a
special luncheon at Becco’s Restaurant, along with a lecture by
Dr. George Bournoutian the following month.

Entitled, Armenian History 101, Dr. Bournoutian’s informative lecture
was well received by a sold out NYSEC audience at the AGBU Central
Office. The program was followed by a question and answer period and
concluded with an afternoon reception.

The NYSEC members have already begun to organize new events for the
local community in the coming months, and anticipate another
successful season. Details and dates for the September event will be
announced shortly.

Launched in 2003 by a dedicated group of AGBU volunteers, NYSEC seeks
to promote a better understanding of both Armenian and American
culture and history in New York City. NYSEC organizes activities that
support AGBU membership and brings together Armenians in the local
community. Those interested in joining the Committee or being placed
on the mailing list should call the AGBU Central Office: 212.319.6383
ext. 128.
