WHS Armenian Club Raises Almost $1,200 in Bake Sale for Artsakh Relief


WATERTOWN — The Armenian Club at Watertown High School organized a highly successful bake sale, raising nearly $1,200 to support the Armenian Relief Society. The event was co-led by club co-presidents Ishkhan Ishkhanian and Gacia Haserjian, along with their dedicated teacher advisor, Siran Tamakian.

The bake sale, which took place on a sunny Friday after school in front of the school, drew a remarkable turnout from students and faculty. The aroma of freshly baked goods filled the air, and a wide variety of delectable treats were available for purchase, from traditional Armenian pastries to homemade cookies and brownies.

The primary goal of the event was to raise funds for the Armenian Relief Society, which is helping the Armenians who have fled Artsakh (Nagorno-Karabakh), resulting in widespread displacement, suffering and a dire need for humanitarian aid.

Ishkhanian and Haserjian, both passionate about their Armenian heritage and the global Armenian community, took the initiative to lead the bake sale. The duo worked alongside their fellow club members to make the event a resounding success.

Tamakian, the Armenian Club’s teacher advisor, played a pivotal role in guiding and supporting the students throughout the planning and execution of the bake sale. Her dedication and commitment to the cause were evident in the seamless organization of the event.

In addition to the bake sale, the Armenian Club displayed informational posters throughout the school and shared insights on the ongoing hardships in Artsakh. They expressed their gratitude to everyone who donated and supported their mission to provide much-needed relief to those suffering in Artsakh.
