Hollywood star Tom Hanks has called for support to the Children of Armenia Fund gala to be held on December 9, 2016.
In a video message shared on Children of Armenia Fund’s Facebook page the actor said he can’t attend the gala, but urged others to join it.
“I can’t be there, which makes me a fool, because I don’t pass up meals at Cipriani easily,” he joked.
“My great friend, Andrea Martin, who I love dearly, is taking on the spirit of Armenia itself by organizing this great gala,” Hanks added.
“Please join it, please help out, explore your Armenian roots,” the actor said.
