Dear Friends: In light of the ongoing war, the ANCA Eastern Region has decided to postpone our gala in order to focus all of our energy and resources towards advocating for our brothers and sisters in Armenia and Artsakh, which is the core of what we do. As such, we are pausing our online gala site – including the online auction for the time being. We know several of you have already pledged your support through donations or by bidding on our auction items. We thank you for your support. The site will be back up when a new date for the gala is set. For now, I know that you join us in supporting our brothers and sisters in the homeland. We may be hitting pause on our gala, but the need for our advocacy efforts has never been more important. Our activists’ days have been filled with congressional meetings and outreach – for the safety and security of our service men and women, our caregivers, our families and friends. We will be in touch on the new date for the gala including the online auction. Please continue to help us amplify our voices. Visit to take action now. Many thanks, ANCA Eastern Region
