About the Event:

Yesterday, today, and beyond… our work continues.

Armenian Americans throughout the Eastern U.S.—especially from the Midwest—will be joining together to celebrate a year of civic activism at the 9th annual Armenian National Committee of America (ANCA) Eastern Region Banquet, to be held on Saturday, November 14, in Detroit.

The banquet, sponsored by the ANCA Eastern Region Endowment Fund, will begin with an elegant cocktail reception and silent auction at 6 p.m., followed by dinner and awards ceremony at 7:30 p.m. The event will take place in the heart of Detroit at the prestigious Westin Book Cadillac Hotel.

This year’s theme for the banquet is moving beyond the Centennial commemoration of the Armenian Genocide, recognizing all the success attained as part of this grand effort and focusing on the work that still lies ahead to achieve full and just resolution for this international crime.

***Tickets for the banquet are $150, but are available for $125 if purchased before October 31, 2015. Banquet attendees are encouraged to buy tickets early to take advantage of the special rate.
