Thank you for helping make COAF's Eighth Annual Gala such a big success.
With your help we were able to raise $1.4 million, providing children living in rural villages of Armenia with the tools they need to realize their potential. This brings the total funds raised since 2004 to over $15 million.
The money raised will directly impact the lives of thousands of children through programs in education, health, social and economic development. A singular belief that was echoed throughout the evening, and illustrated by the generosity of our dedicated supporters, is that the promise of a better future begins with children.
During our live charity auction, conducted by noted Sotheby's auctioneer, C. Hugh Hildesley, we raised the necessary funds to rebuild a second school in Karakert, providing a safe and nurturing environment for more than 300 children in the village.
As in previous years, all of our administrative expenses are supported by our Board of Directors, allowing 100% of the funds we raised during the event to go directly to programs that benefit children.
