The SD-BOD would like to express its gratitude to Homa, Vida, and Mehrbanu Zartoshti for their sponsorship of the event and covering all associated costs in memory of their mother, Paridokht Mavandad Zartoshty.

We were honored to have Mobed Fariborz Shahzadi recite the prayers for the Gahanbar so beautifully.

در روز شنبه، ۲۹ آوریل ۲۰۲۳، ما مراسم چهره میدیازارم گاهانبار را در ساختمان رستم گیو سان دیگو برگزار کردیم و حدود ۱۰۰ نفر از اعضای جامعه در تمام سنین در این مراسم شرکت کردند. ما از هما، ویدا و مهربانو زرتشتی برای حمایت از این رویداد و پرداخت هزینه های مربوطه به خاطر مادرشان، پریدخت ماونداد زرتشتی، قدردانی می کنیم

یکی از مواردی که این رویداد را منحصر به فرد کرد، شرکت افرادی از جامعه پارسی بود. مدتی است که آنها را ندیده بودیم و بسیار خوشحال بودیم که با برادران و خواهران پارسی خود این رویداد را جشن گرفتیم

علاوه بر این، ما باید از شما بابت کمک‌های خیرخواهانه به گاهانبار قدردانی کنیم. این همکاری‌ها به ما کمک می‌کنند که ادامه‌ی این رسم و رسوم مهم را ادامه دهیم و جامعه را به همراه بیاوریم.
