Were you a part of it, too? If you were to describe it to Non-Armenians it would be the American-Armenian Olympics followed by a huge celebration, the Navasartian Festival. Different generations of Armenians, some fluent in Armenian, some Armenian at heart, came together for the Navasartian Games and Festival in the first week of July. According to Salpi Jejeian, a Homenetmen Regional Executive Committee member, more than 30,000 attended Navasartian this year, making it a great success.
Ameria Group Inc., also joined the Navasartian Games and Festival as a sponsor this year. Ameria’s booth at the festival attracted more than 2,000 Armenian-Americans with its “Win a trip to Armenia. When in Armenia, Think Ameria” campaign. Some were drawn to the Ameria booth excited about a possible trip to Armenia. Others already had tickets to “Hayrenik” and were pleased to learn that they can get professional financial and consulting support in Armenia through Ameria.
Rafi Manoukian was also at Navasartian, both as a parent with kids playing at the games and as the CEO of Ameria Group’s LA office. Manoukian greeted community members at the Ameria booth, saying: “We are here to serve the community and to connect the Diaspora to Armenia through Ameria, Diaspora’s most trusted advisory services provider in Armenia. We are happy to be part of one of the biggest events in the Diaspora, the Navasartian Games and Festival.”
“For years Navasartian has brought together different generations of the Armenian Diaspora to compete in athletics and celebrate the Armenian heritage and family values. That’s empowering. Ameria is pleased to be a part of Navasartian and reach out to every American-Armenian who cares for Armenia and wants to make a positive change in the country through business ventures,” added Ameria’s LA office PR manager Anush A. Hovsepyan.
The Navasartian games marked the beginning of Ameria’s “Win a trip to Armenia. When in Armenia, think Ameria” campaign. The campaign is still ongoing until August 29th. Go to AmeriaGroupInc.com for your chance to win a trip to “Hayrenik.”
