Telethon, $2,548,000 was raised from donations large and small from
a wide cross-section of the community, demonstrating and bolstering
the grassroots power and capability of Armenian Americans.

During the six-hour broadcast, the telethon aired segments documenting
the activities of the ANCA Endowment Fund in working for Genocide
education and recognition, aid to Armenia and Nagorno-Karabakh and
encouraging participation by the Armenian-American community.

Volunteers from all walks of life flooded the Horizon Armenian
Television studios for the entire day to help ensure the success of the
telethon, which was being planned for several months, Asbarez reported.
