BELMONT, Mass. — The Hai Guin Scholarship Association will hold its 2019 Spring Benefit Luncheon on Saturday, April 27th at the Belmont Country Club, Belmont. This year a fashion presentation and pop-up shop will be featured by world renowned St. John, of Boston, MA.
St. John is an American luxury house that was founded in 1962 by Robert and Marie Gray. It is a fascinating coming together of craft and couture based on the premise of a simple, yet elegant knit dress. Over the years, the brand has evolved, but the basis for the collection remains the same today as it did from the very start — effortless, alluring, and refined clothing that appeals to women all over the world. St. John has a unique American design with a core in signature innovative knits, and has an undisputed reputation for luxury and quality.
The Spring Benefit will begin with a silent auction, raffle prizes, a pop-up shop and more, followed by a luncheon and a Fashion Presentation by St. John. Michele Kolligian, Joyce Jones, and Pamela Gechijian, Benefit Co-Chairs, Gladys Partamian, president, and committee members are diligently working to put the final touches on the Spring Benefit event. Committee members are: Christine Berberian and Andrea Garabedian, ticket reservations; Karen Martin, donations; Carol Haroutunian, centerpieces; Sandra Aghababian, program booklet; Carol Haroutunian and Donna Deranian, silent auction; and Joyce Guleserian, Ida Kolligian, and Mary Kupjian, raffle prizes.
The Hai Guin Scholarship Association has provided educational assistance to undergraduate and graduate college students of Armenian heritage since 1935. Proceeds from this event fund scholarships to students who are Massachusetts residents, and attend a college in the continental United States. Candidates must have completed one year at the school for which the scholarship is requested. Scholarships awarded are based on merit and need. The attendance of this program and community support allows the Hai Guin Scholarship Association to continue its mission.
