LOS ANGELES—The Armenian Missionary Association (AMAA) is proud to honor the Los Angeles area Child & Orphan Care Committee at its Centennial Kick-off Celebration on Saturday, October 8, 2016 6pm at the Jonathan Club 545 South Figueroa Street, Los Angeles. Over $200,000 in donations has already been pledged.
The Child & Orphan Care Committee was founded in 1988 under the auspices of the AMAA —following the earthquake in Armenia. Thousands of destitute and marginalized children and families have been blessed over the years by this outreach. The Annual Child & Orphan Care Luncheon and Children’s Fashion Show, much-awaited by the community, has raised over $5,000,000 over the years.
A film, produced and narrated by Tina Segal interviewing the original committee members, will be one of the many highlights of the evening. This evening’s celebration will be a much-deserved salute to these devoted women.
The purpose of the AMAA is to serve the physical and spiritual needs of people everywhere, both at home and overseas. To fulfill this worldwide mission, the AMAA maintains a range of educational, evangelistic, relief, social service, and church and child care ministries in 24 countries around the world.
The mission and service ministry of the AMAA is made possible through the Grace of God and by the gifts of individuals and churches committed to fulfilling the Great Commission – “Go into all the world and preach the Gospel to all creation.”
