Fundraiser Concert

On August 12, 2006 the Glendale High School Auditorium hosted a benefit concert to rebuild the school at Chinari Village in Armenia. This was an evening filled with unlimited love, hope and tangible work towards our holy country Armenia and our strong people: Armenians!

More than 1,500 Armenians gathered together in Glendale to rebuild the Chinari Village School located in the Tavush region, Armenia.

Many talented artists made the concert a night for everyone to remember for the years to come! Many artists for the first time performed with their daughters, sons, brothers, sisters and students to make this a unique concert!
