SAN MATEO, Calif.—On Monday, October 8, the 17th annual Gerald and Mark Golf Classic was held at The Peninsula Golf and Country Club in San Mateo. The annual event is hosted by community benefactor Hank Khachaturian in memory of his sons Gerald and Mark and to raise funds for charitable causes.
Western Prelate Archbishop Moushegh Mardirossian attended the awards dinner and conveyed his blessing and message. He was accompanied by Very Rev. Fr. Barouyr Shernezian, Pastor of St. Gregory the Illuminator Church in San Francisco, Board of Trustees Chair Rostom Aintablian and community members.
Addressing Khachaturian, the Prelate stated, “It is said that the good you do comes back to you. For as long as I have known you, you have exemplified the Christian virtues of charity, love, and goodwill toward others, and I’m glad to see the good that you do come back to you year after year through the great turnout and show of support at this wonderful event.” He blessed Khachatourian for his generosity and for all the lives he’s touched through the Khachaturian Foundation, and offered a prayer for the souls of his sons Gerald and Mark and his wife Rita.
