GLENDALE–At the invitation of the Armenian Revolutionary Federation Western United States Central Committee’s Finance Committee–some 120 community members–friends and party members took part recently in a community gathering–which raised $80,000 for the activities of the Armenian Revolutionary Federation’s activities in the region.
