Thanks to the generosity of our sponsors, donors and supporters, our 2021 Annual Raffle Fundraiser was a great success. We are truly grateful for the remarkable response from our extended Ararat Home family!
The raffle drawing was held virtually on Wednesday, September 29th, in one of our Residents’ Dining Rooms on our Mission Hills campus, with participation of two of our residents, the Board of Trustees Picnic Committee Chair Michael Surmeian, and Chief Operating Officer Derik Ghookasian. The video of the drawing is available to view here, with a message of appreciation from Board of Trustees Chair Joseph Kanimian, Esq.
Typically, we hold our raffle drawings during our Annual Picnics, which fall on the last Sundays of September. These community picnics have been organized on Ararat Home grounds, in collaboration with the Los Angeles chapter of the Triple X Fraternity, yearly since 1952. Due to COVID-19, and with the safety of our residents, staff and guests in mind, this tradition has been paused for the past two years.
As we look forward with hope to next year, we send our heartfelt appreciation to our Friends for their continued generosity and support. The Board of Trustees, Administration, Staff and Residents of Ararat Home THANK YOU!
