We are overwhelmed with the tremendous support and positive community feedback that we have received for our inaugural Arab American Heritage Gala on Sunday, April 24, 2016 at the Pacific Hills Banquet in Laguna Hills.

We are deeply grateful to all those who attended the event, our volunteers, sponsors, our remarkable keynote speaker Dr. Sarah Gualtieri, our inspiring honorees: Joseph Haiek, and Laith Majali – on behalf of Oscar-nominated film Theeb – and comedian Sammy Obeid who ended the evening on a high note with his memorable performance.
