Massachusetts Auction Raises $220,000 for Mine-Free Artsakh

Armenian Weekly

A dinner party on June 10, at the home of Raffi and Nina Festekjian, raised $220,000 for HALO Trust’s Safe Steps for the People of Karabagh Campaign, surpassing expectations by the organizers, Armenian Weekly reports.

The goal is to demine the entirety of Artsakh by 2020.

A vigorous auction of Scout Tufankjian’s photographs and wine from Karabakh, as well as donations, brought the total raised to $110,000, which will be doubled by an anonymous donor.

The Festekjians are the co-chairs of the campaign.
