The Nataline Sarkisyan Foundation was created to honor Nataline Sarkisyan and the aspirations she had. Despite being diagnosed with leukemia, there were some things which leukemia just could not take from Nataline…. her teenage dreams and hopes of organizing and holding a fashion show.
Nataline lost her courageous battle on December 20, 2007 , after her insurance company CIGNA denied her a chance to keep fighting, but her dream will be fulfilled and her loving, generous spirit will live on forever. Every July, in homage to Nataline’s birthday, Fashion Legacy will be held.
The annual proceeds of ticket sales to the fashion show, together with benevolent contributions to Fashion Legacy, will provide grant scholarships to eligible students attending a fashion or culinary learning institute and Medical school. Nataline’s dreams will, in turn, help one of her peers live their dream.
