GLENDALE—Friends and family of Allen Yekikian and Sosé Thomassian-Yekikian announced the launch of Sosé & Allen’s Legacy Foundation Web site Tuesday, to coincide with the late couple’s one-year wedding anniversary on August 11.
The Foundation was established in memory of the couple who lost their lives in a car accident on May 10, 2013.
“Sosé & Allen lived passionately, selflessly and touched so many lives, the Foundation will work with the same spirit and quality to continue what they started in Armenia and the Diaspora,” said Foundation Chairperson Vaché Thomassian.
Sosé & Allen’s Legacy Foundation will continue the couple’s vision by establishing programs and supporting existing programs aimed at bridging the gap between Armenia and its Diaspora, through an emphasis on education, repatriation, and volunteerism within the homeland.
