The Pride of Heritage Banquet 2010

The Pride of Heritage celebration went off with an exceptional bang this year! Annually, The House of Lebanon, a volunteer organization that promotes and supports the preservation of Lebanese American culture through social and educational programs, celebrates their initiatives with this truly memorable gathering.

The exclusive private event was held at the beautiful Beverly Hills Hotel and brought in over 200 attendees including prominent Lebanese dignitaries, business people, and community leaders. One special individual in particular was present this night, honoree Jim Koury, a well-respected businessman and philanthropist in the community.

Each year, The Pride of Heritage Banquet brings in high profiled speakers such as Jay Leno and Bill Clinton, but this time they opted for Wayne Foster Entertainment to orchestrate an evening full of music for both dining and dancing! WFE played their signature wide repertoire while infusing the most loved and popular Lebanese songs.

It was an honor to help the volunteers of the House of Lebanon, celebrating the preservation of the Lebanese cultures and traditions through food, music, and dancing.

All of the guests were overwhelmed with delight and danced the night away. Ecstatic responses flowed in from the beginning of the night and have still yet to seize. “This by far is the best time we have had out of all the years”, “The most amazing time ever”, and “what a fun night”, to name a few! It was a memorable night for all!
