On Sunday, November 14, Anahit Indzhigulyan and Benjamin Zaslavsky, the young organizers of the Change Lives, Change the World charity concert that took place at St. Illuminator’s on October 17, visited the Cathedral with their parents and presented Rev. Fr. Mesrob Lakissian a check for $18,000 of funds they raised with their concert.
The funds will be allocated in equal parts to relief for needy Armenian families in Lebanon and Artsakh through the Armenian Prelacy and to NYU breast cancer research.
On behalf of the entire St. Illuminator’s Family, Der Mesrob thanked Anahit and Benjamin, their parents, their fellow performers, and all the donors and presented Anahit and Benjamin and their fellow performance with certificates of appreciation, with special wishes for happiness, health, new successes, and a bright future. Der Mesrob also extended a permanent invitation to Anahit, Benjamin and their talented young friends to think of themselves as “cultural” parishioners of St. Illuminator’s and of St. Illuminator’s as a place where they can enjoy a permanent welcome.
