WELLESLEY, Mass.—With over 185 people in attendance, the 15th Annual “Children Helping Children” event held on Oct. 28 at the Wellesley Country Club in Wellesley raised over $50,000 to benefit children in Armenia. The event was organized by the Boston Region Orphan and Child Care Committee of the Armenian Missionary Association of America (AMAA).
The luncheon featured inspiring performances by the students of St. Stephen’s Armenian Elementary School in Watertown and the Armenian Sisters Academy in Lexington. Hosts for the afternoon, television personalities Mike Wankum and Chris Talanian, lifted hearts and spirits during the exciting live and silent auctions.
The committee expressed its appreciation for the participation of all the donors and guests whose generosity has already made a difference in the lives of many children.
