The Treasures of Armenia at IHP Cocktail Party: A Mole Street Production

Last week the Trustees of International House Philadelphia and the 52nd Global Gala Committee
members hosted a wine reception celebrating the Treasures of
Armenia with a wine tasting, and Armenian themed Music, Culture, and

Guests came out and enjoyed light hors d’œuvres and wine from the Galer Estate Vineyard and Winery.

International House Philadelphia is a multicultural residential center, a
source of distinctive programming, and the embodiment of an ideal. Our
critical three-fold mission: to maintain a diverse and welcoming
community for scholars from around the world, while introducing them to
the American experience; to broaden the horizons of its residents and
the larger community through high quality international arts and
humanities programs and to encourage cooperation and respect among the
peoples of all nations.
