Event description

Description

The Kanayan Family is partnering with Armenia Tree Project (ATP) to create a living memorial to General Drastamat "Dro" Kanayan and his 1918 victory in Aparan. ATP has been planting trees to beautify the park around the Bash Aparan Monument and the location of General Dro’s final resting place. General Dro was buried in Boston, and his body was re-interred in Aparan in 2000 in a national ceremony initiated by Armenia’s military establishment. The goal is to plant 2,500 trees to improve the site. Already 1,700 of ATP’s trees have been planted, and an additional 800 trees will be planted this spring as part of a visit by the Kanayan Family.

Tickets for the Oak and Vine reception include wine and hors d'oeuvres (www.theoakandvine.com), and sponsorship donations are encouraged. Donations of $500 or more will be recognized on a permanent plaque at the Bash Aparan site, and gifts of $5,000 or more will be recognized with a personalized bench.

Visit www.ArmeniaTree.org/1918 for more information.

There's two ways to support this project:

(1) Purchase tickets here on Eventbrite for the April 12th event at The Oak and Vine

(2) Make a sponsorship donation in honor of General Dro and the Battle of Bash Aparan via www.ArmeniaTree.org/Dro
