HALO Trust bringing mine-free awareness to Glendale

On Sept. 28, the HALO Trust will be hosting a night of music, art, food, and a good cause to create a mine-free Artsakh.

To date, HALO Trust, the world's oldest and largest humanitarian landmine clearance organization, has cleared 581 minefields in Nagorno Karabakh (Artsakh), yet, 144 still remain.

HALO is the only mine clearance organization operating in Nagorno Karabakh and development, reconstruction, resettlement, and other humanitarian aid is dependent on the continuation of mine clearance. Since its creation in 1988, with the help of the HALO Trust, over 1.4 million landmines have been destroyed.

As for the Glendale gathering, the Snake Charmer Ensemble will play live music, and art from the likes Hermine Demirtshyan, Voskan Galstian, Emily Halpern, Koko Hovaguimian, Anthony Miserendino, Argishti Musakhanyan, Arshak Nazarian, Kat Shoa, and Zareh will be featured.

A donation of $20 is suggested.

The event is scheduled to take place from 7 p.m. to 11:30 p.m. at the Hollywood Production Center, located at 225 E. Broadway in Glendale, Calif. Street parking is available on Louise, and 90 minute free parking in Maryland structures.
