At the initiative of the Hamazkayin Western USA Regional Executive Board Traditions Committee, on March 2, 2019, there was a dinner-masquerade for Mardi Gras, kicking off what is going to become an annual tradition. The event was held in the Taglyan Hall in Hollywood.
The chair of the traditions committee and cochair of the event, Shushig Arslanian, talked about how it’s possible to make unique and enjoyable evenings for the community.
Many of the participants arrived wearing interesting costumes, and everyone had a good time. Those present enjoyed the food, as well as the arts program presented by the Pari Chanson ensemble.
The group performed some of Charles Aznavour’s most beloved songs, which drew those present to the beautifully decorated dance floor.
The event’s emcee was comedian Lory Tatoulian, who after greeting the guests, invited the Hamazkayin Traditions Committee’s Loreyn Aleksandr to introduce the committee’s newest initiative.
