Glendale to host fundraiser for Armenian Genocide memorial Feb 18

PanARMENIAN.Net - A dinner fundraiser for the Pasadena Armenian Genocide Memorial will be held on February 18 at Phoenicia restaurant in Glendale, the Los Angeles Times reports.

The special guest at the event will be Sinan Sinanian, construction team leader for the memorial.

An Armenian Genocide memorial was dedicated at Sunset Park in Las Vegas on November 14, 2015. The monument is a replica of the one that was dedicated in 1965 in Yerevan, Armenia. It's made out of precast concrete and has 12 pillars, which represent the 12 provinces where Armenians were massacred, as well as a bench and dedication plaque on an adjacent boulder.

Another memorial commemorating the Armenian Genocide was unveiled at Fresno State in April, 2015 to commemorate the centennial of the massacres perpetrated at the hands of the Ottoman Empire.
