[CSFC]: Third Annual Best for Our Children Event a Huge Success.

June 8, 2010

For the third year in a row, FAR carried on a wonderful tradition of holding The Best for Our Children event in honor of International Children’s Rights Day on June 1. Twenty thousand people gathered in Yerevan’s Victory Park on June 2 to celebrate and bring greater momentum to this movement.

More than 70 representatives from the business, art, and political sectors, wearing aprons marked with The Best for Our Children, sold juice, ice cream, and other treats in the park. Leading companies like Coca-Cola, Grand Candy, Ashtarak Kat, Tamara, Shant ASA, Daroink, and Zuzu were among those represented. Ardshininvestbank, Moscow House in Yerevan, World Medicine, as well as the Iranian company Diba and Dina, provided homemade cookies, caps, balls, and journals, which were autographed by local celebrities and auctioned off.

National Assembly Representative Arevik Petrosyan and First Deputy Minister of Territorial Administration Vache Terteryan also attended. The day closed with a free open-air concert and fireworks.

FAR’s Children’s Support Foundation Center (CSFC), with the help of supporter Bella Kocharyan, organized the entire event, which aimed to bring greater public attention to the issues of children, strengthen Armenia’s growing culture of philanthropy, and fundraise for the CSFC’s child protection programs.
